Matt Ritchie has won the Player of the season by the second highest percentage ever.
Only Sebastien Bassong back in 2009 had a higher percentage at 67.9 and he left us for Tottenham for £8M that year after we had been relegated – 30 year-old Bassong now plays for Norwich City.
Matt Ritchie had a great first season for us and scored 16 goals and was easily our Player of the Season this year.
Given the lad dropped down a division from Bournemouth to play for us too, we know Matt is completely committed to Newcastle.
He will be even better next season back in the Premier League under the expert coaching of a certain Rafa Benitez.
