Newcastle fans want loan star to sign permanent deal after sublime goal

Newcastle United loanee Christian Atsu scored a stunning free-kick in his side’s 2-0 win against Cardiff City at the Cardiff City Stadium on Friday night, and Magpies fans want him to join on a permanent deal.

The Ghana international moved to St James’ Park on a season-long loan deal from Chelsea last summer and it is believed that Rafa Benitez can complete a £6.5m deal for the winger as long as he makes a decision within a week of the Championship season ending.

The club sealed promotion back to the Premier League on Monday night when they beat Preston North End 4-1, and Atsu has scored five league goals in 31 appearances to help them go up.

Newcastle supporters were quick to have their say on the 25-year-old’s performance and fantastic goal in Wales, and they want him to be part of their Premier League squad next term.
