Newcastle United: Fans shut down repeated links to Arsenal star Granit Xhaka

After former Arsenal captain Granit Xhaka was booed off the pitch for his performance at home to Crystal Palace, prompting an emotional reaction from the player, many rumours have been floating around regarding his potential exit in January – with Newcastle United being heavily linked.

Xhaka, who was stripped of the captaincy following the infamous incident, has been rumoured by the likes of the Telegraph and the Times to make a move away from the Emirates and to the Magpies.
