Newcastle fans react as Ritchie reportedly nears exit

Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to a transfer report, which claims that Matt Ritchie could leave the club this summer.

According to The Sun, Ritchie has been told he can leave Tyneside this summer.

The report claims the winger turned wing-back requested a new deal in a meeting with Rafael Benitez recently, but was rejected.

Set to turn 30 around the start of next season, the Scot was told he would not be offered new terms because of his age.

The age limit on signings and contract extensions has become a major talking point under Mike Ashley, and unsurprisingly fans are not happy with this report.

Ritchie has never produced the end product he did at Bournemouth for the Magpies, but his work rate, leadership and versatility is second to none.

Loads of fans have been giving their reactions to the report, and it’s a mixture of anger, disbelief and even a couple who think it may be a blessing in disguise.

Either way, you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
