Would be mad to sell him: Newcastle fans want new deal for Matt Ritchie

The Newcastle United fans have been on social media discussing whether Matt Ritchie should be offered a new contract by the club.

Ritchie will see his current deal at St James’ Park expire in June 2021.

According to The Sun, the fact that an extension has not been agreed has led to Stoke City monitoring the situation.

And it will certainly be interesting to see what happens with Ritchie this summer as all is not well.

The 29-year-old contributed two goals and eight assists in 36 Premier League appearances for Newcastle during the 2018-19 campaign, which is a good return.

And a number of the club’s fans have taken to social media to urge their side to sort out an extension with the Scotland international, who was used as a wing-back on a number of occasions in the second half of the season.
