According to Ghana Soccer Net, Huddersfield Town are interested in signing Newcastle United winger Christian Atsu in this summer’s transfer window.
Atsu joined Newcastle on a permanent deal last summer following a loan spell at the club, and scored twice in 28 Premier League appearances last term.
The 26-year-old – valued at £5.4m by Transfermarkt – missed the end of the campaign with a knee problem, but has returned to the fold during pre-season.
Huddersfield are said to be interested in signing the Ghana international this summer, and the Newcastle fans have been reacting to the transfer speculation.

There are many who would be prepared to let Atsu leave in this summer’s transfer window, but there are also those who are concerned about a lack of numbers.
It is expected to be a busy end to the summer window for Newcastle, however, and Atsu might well find himself surplus to requirements.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the club’s fans can be seen below:
We should sell him to fund our house of Fraser purchase #NUFC

Can’t believe ppl hoping this isn’t true? Anyone who’s willing to pay over £5m for Atsu I would snap their hands off! Lads not good enough – simple as! Nice fella, scored a good free kick once – that’s about it 👋🏼🙏🏼

He lacks lethal pace, flatters to deceive and really is Championship level. But DAMNIT we’ll barely have a first team when the window shuts.
