As quoted by The Shields Gazette, Rafa Benitez has discussed the prospect of signing Christian Atsu on a permanent deal with our Magpies fans in the Transfer Tavern unsure whether he’s going to go for him.
The winger is currently on loan with the north east side as they are looking to bounce back into the Premier League at the first time of asking.
Certainly, they’re looking good to do just that with them currently top of the Championship table.
After seeing Brighton go above them on Tuesday night they needed to respond yesterday evening against Wigan and duly did with a comfortable 2-0 win at the DW Stadium.
The club face Burton Albion next but ahead of that fixture Benitez was asked of his transfer plans for January and, in particular, for the quick winger to which he responded in typically coy fashion.
The former Liverpool manager said:
“At the moment he’s signed for next game with Burton. I’m pleased with that. We don’t talk about market now.”
Like getting blood from a stone reckons our landlord but the Spaniard wasn’t ruling a move out and so we could see him sign permanently in January.
Would you sign him on, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
