Newcastle fans love coup for striker sensation

Newcastle have confirmed the signings of two teenage talents, and one in particular has got fans eagerly awaiting his debut.

Newcastle’s official club website confirmed two new captures on Monday, as 17-year-old Yannick Toure and 18-year-old Rosaire Longelo both signed to play for the Under-23 squad.

Toure is drawing extra attention, as the youngster’s goal record in Switzerland since he broke out has been truly remarkable.

The 17 year-old can play anywhere across the attack, and grabbed six goals in seven games for BSC Young Boys last year.

Looking further back, he scored 23 goals in 23 appearances in the Swiss U-18 league, so he certainly knows where the back of the net is.

He also scored twice on his debut for the Switzerland U-17 side, and his comments about moving to Tyneside are already getting fans excited.

“I came to the stadium and watched the Chelsea match (on the final day of last season), which was very good,” he said.

“Newcastle won 3-0 and it was a great match. And I saw the fans, who were crazy. They live for football and are so passionate, and I like that very much.”

Nothing quite gets fans excited like a young talent who loves the fans and the city, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
