Newcastle United fans are interested in giving Aleksandar Mitrovic a second chance at the club after his successful loan spell at Fulham culminated in promotion to the English Premier League.
Mitrovic was a powerful presence throughout the Cottagers’ 1-0 play-off final win against Aston Villa on Saturday. He’s also scored 12 goals in 20 appearances for the club since moving to London on loan in January.
Speculation will now be rife about which club he’ll be at next season, with Fulham supporters obviously desperate to keep him at Craven Cottage.
Fans of the Magpies aren’t entirely keen to see him leave either, although there are many eyeing a cash-in on the in-form striker.
Plenty are eager for him to get another chance under Rafa Benitez though, recognising he is still a young, developing player and knows his way to goal with a run of games.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts after Satuday’s match at Wembley…

I absolutely love Mitrovic. Works so hard on the pitch and wears his heart on his sleeve. Can’t see it happening but I hope he gets a second chance at Newcastle. If not I hope he goes onto prove himself at another club. #NUFC

Maybe Rafa will see how well Mitrovic has done there and allow him some minutes and take him back
