Reported Newcastle United target Joe Bryan scored a goal and was arguably the best Bristol City player on the pitch as the Robins beat Manchester United 2-1 in the EFL Cup quarter-finals on a famous night at Ashton Gate on Wednesday, and Magpies fans were quick to have their say in the 24-year-old.
According to reports on Football Insider on Wednesday, both the Magpies and Premier League rivals Everton are keen on a January deal for the versatile left-sided player, but he may have caught the attentions of other clubs following his performance against the Red Devils.
The 5ft 7in player was impressive at both ends of the pitch, and it was his rasping drive that gave the Robins the lead in the second-half.
Newcastle supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on Bryan’s display, and they aren’t confident of signing him now.
While one said “Bristol City aren’t going to sell him”, another said “I think that’s #NUFC officially ruled out for Joe Bryan after that performance!”
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Joe Bryan just scored against Manchester. Probably put 5 mil on him now. No way Ashley will give us the coin on him now #nufc
