Seri has been strongly linked with a move away from Nice over the last few months, but the speculation increased when he was left out of the French club’s pre-season training camp.

Fulham are seemingly going to pay £35m to sign Seri, and the news has not gone down too well with a selection of Newcastle fans, who feel that the failed deal is just another example of how they cannot compete with their Premier League rivals for big signings.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Newcastle supporters can be seen below:
