Newcastle United look to be staying in the Premier League after putting together an impressive run of form at the right end of the season, however, one of their players will not be returning to the club.
According to reports, The Scottish Sun is claiming that Stuart Findlay has told them he will not be heading back to the north-east outfit once his loan deal at Kilmarnock ends. The defender has been impressing during his time with the Scottish Premiership side, having scored the winner against Partick Thistle at the weekend.
“I’m out of contract with Newcastle at the end of the season. They called me down for a meeting and they told me I will leave,” he told the Scottish Sun.
“I’m not thinking about the future. It’s hard to say what will happen. At the moment I’m loving everything that’s happening at Kilmarnock under a magnificent manager.
“When the gaffer came in he played me at left-back, which wasn’t my favourite position.
“But I showed I could do a job and he could trust me. Big Gordon Greer got a few injuries so I got my chance at centre-back and I’ve played well.
“To have a man of Steve Clarke’s calibre backing me has given me all the confidence in the world.”
After largely failing to make the grade at St. James’ Park, not many of our resident Geordies would miss the 22-year-old and our punters clad in black and white hope Rafa Benitez is backed with big money to round out the squad in Findlay’s absence. It seems the Magpies have made their minds up, however, and his short-lived stint on Tyneside looks to be coming to an end.
The locals in the Tavern will be wishing the defender the best for his future and many will have been hoping the prospect would have been making a breakthrough into the first-team. The punters will be wishing the 22-year-old the best for the future and will be hoping he can establish himself somewhere else.
Clearly talented enough to convince both Celtic and Newcastle to take a punt on him, Findlay shouldn’t struggle.
