We have been really impressed with Cristian Atsu since he arrived at Newcastle and he seems like a really nice guy.
It’s obvious that Cristian is desperate to stay at Newcastle after his season long loan deal and he’s often said how much he likes it at the club.
Of course it’s up to manager Rafa Benitez to make the decision on whether he will sign him permanently, but the lad is very popular on Tyneside and he certainly has the ability, if Rafa can bring it out of him on a consistent basis.
Cristian Atsu – loves it at Newcastle
Cristian is at the Africa Cup of Nations and the tournament starts today.
But Newcastle are still on the lad’s mind as he tweeted this today:
Good Luck to @NUFC ???

Here’s a tweet of Ghana’s last training session.

Ghana’s first game is against Uganda on Tuesday – we’ll have to watch that on TV.
Two years ago Atsu had a great tournament and he was the AFCON Golden Boot winner.
We hope Rafa signs the 24 year-old on a permanent basis in the summer, but at the moment it’s by no means certain he will do that.
