Sky Sports are reporting that Newcastle have taken up the option on Chelsea winger Christian Atsu and have agreed to sign the Ghanaian International for £6.2M and he becomes Rafa’s first signing of the summer.
Fans will be pleased the club have taken up the option on Christian, who has become a popular player on Tyneside and just loved his season on loan last season and was very keen to make the move permanent.
We think Atsu will be delighted to sign permanently for the Tyneside club in a four year deal.
Christian Atsu – always smiling
Christian appeared 35 times for Newcastle last season with 16 starts and 5 goals and he showed the class that Rafa Benitez wants to bring into the club for our season back in the Premier League.
In the poll we ran on Christian, four fans in five wanted the club to sign him permanently.
