Newcastle fans on Twitter are over the moon with new man Federico Fernandez

When Newcastle United opted to sign Federico Fernandez from Swansea over the summer, a lot of fans were underwhelmed with the signing. The Argentine had just gone down with Swansea and the Newcastle fans were in meltdown at Mike Ashley, however, now that the dust has settled, Fernandez is proving to be a class act at St James Park.

At 29-years-old and with four years of Premier League experience under his belt, Fernandez was always going to be a brilliant option for any club that thought they may struggling near the bottom of the table this season and it’s looking more and more like a masterstroke from Rafa Benitez that he signed the Argentine. Fernandez was superb yet again on Saturday as The Magpies recorded their first win of the season and he’ll be hoping it’s the first of many.

One area that the Geordies aren’t lacking in as at centre-back. Alongside Fernandez, Jamaal Lascelles is a superb option and then with another new signing in Fabien Schar, the club has bags of talent that they can call on at the back. The next test for Fernandez and co is a testing clash where they’ll be hosting Eddie Howe’s high-flying Bournemouth and it’s a game that will provide another tough test for Fernandez and the Newcastle defence as The Cherries have scored the 5th most goals in the Premier League so far.

The Magpies really are running out of superlatives to describe Fernandez and will hope he can keep up his superb form right through the hectic festive period.
