Newcastle fans take to Twitter to vent after Gelson Martins loan falls through

In truth, a lot of Newcastle fans will have known this was going to happen, but their supposed loan move for Atletico Madrid’s Gelson Martins has fallen through and will not be happening. The Portuguese winger will not be coming to St James Park, and it’s The Chronicle that has brought this negative news to the fans.

If Gelson Martins had turned up on Tyneside then the Geordies would have been in for a real treat. The winger had been tearing up the Portuguese league before making a summer move to Atletico Madrid. However, in Madrid, he’s failed to make his mark and with a hamstring injury currently restricting his game time it looks like a loan move is on the cards and struggling Newcastle would have been perfect.

The failed loan move looks to have gone sour because of interest from Monaco, who have swooped in to hijack the loan and now it looks like the 23-year-old winger will be forgetting about life in the Northeast of England and moving to Monaco. It looks like Rafa Benitez will have to continue wheeling and dealing for his targets now, and it’s looking increasingly like this will be just another disappointing transfer window under Mike Ashley.

You can read the Geordies’ verdict on the Martins failure here:

The Geordies are absolutely fuming over their transfer dealings, yet they’re still not surprised and will expect to end January no better off than they started it.
