Delighted Fans React To Florian Lejeune Finally Signing On At Newcastle United


Newcastle fans woke up this morning and around 8:30 am is when Newcastle reported they had indeed signed 26 year-old Florian Lejeune on a five year deal – a player we had been after for several weeks.

Florian has been interviewed on nufcTV and he comes across as very down to earth and he is determined to do well at Newcastle.

He said it took some time to get the deal done but that was between the clubs – so maybe he was even a little frustrated it took so long – he also said his short time at Manchester City was strange.

26 year-old Florian Lejeune – delighted to join Newcastle United

He seems a good lad and he seems to have adapted well to most football challenges in the past and he could become a stellar buy for us and it’s clear Rafa knew about him since he was at Villarreal way back in 2011.

So Rafa definitely wanted him and Florian said that made the difference and he was happy to join Newcastle, which he said was one of the big clubs in England.

He spoke in French so he said it was important he learned the English language quickly – and that’s true.

These are some of the reactions from fans on Twitter who welcomed him warmly to Newcastle United.

    For some reason, I recall Grosicki being good on MoTD, nearly scored a couple, regularly beat men, hard worker and but for Hull’s forwards being pretty awful, he’d have had more assists. I think Abel Hernandez and Niasse from Everton were worse than Mitro! Mind all said ……… http://i.memecaptain.com/gend_images/LRqDQQ.jpg

    Superb player
    Will add much needed height in the back four
    He is good in the air and is a no nonsense defender
    Very much in the mould of Sami hypia
    Still think we need another cback as am not sure on mbemba and lacelles
    Think Clark is good but I would like us to sign jones from manu Utd
    He plays dmid and centre back and would add competition for cback and dmid positions

    I also think we should go all out for Andrew Robertson from hull for left back
    Him and dummett should fight it out for the position and between them I think we should look pretty good with good cover

    I wonder if having lejeune here will help bring chancel Mbemba on, after all he’s still only just 22 till august, he speaks French as well as lejeune, I think that would be a great partnership on paper …….hopefully it lives up to its potential, and as you say, both players can slot into CDM position if needed.

    What do we do with Diame this season, for me he was the biggest disappointment for us last season, he has shown in the past just how good he can be but last season he was awful, do we give him another chance or cut our losses and get rid.

    I think we should break our transfer record also for justin klievert
    Absolutely superb player
    If he costs 30 million you could sell him after 2 seasons for 70 million
    Best young forward about imo
    Another player I am dying for us to sign is Ryan gauld from sporting
    He will be greatest ever Scottish player
    Technically brilliant
    Maybe needs to bulk up for prem but again cost ya 20 plus million but will treble in value after a few good seasons in prem
    Have a feeling he will go on to be best player in the world

    Jazzy, Arsenal reportedly after Carvalho and Gelson for £70m double deal…no way we’ll compete at that price!! But surely we should be looking at players like Ruben Neves, think its WBA offered £14m for him.

    And another player we should get is Danilo pereira
    If your disappointed in what looks like missing out on carvalho
    This kid is head and shoulders the best defensive midfielder in Portugal
    Bit like Kante but not as good (yet)

    And I thought Lejuene deal took along time haha.

    Toonrich

    Would have loved a signature player like Carvalho here mate.
    Even if it’s one massive player to come in and say 2 big loan signings as well to get us through the season like a Zouma and Batshuayi.
    Then the rest players that are upgrades on what we have, Then build from there

    Pereira has a 34.5 million release clause
    But I reckon 25 million and Perez would get ya him
    He would be on big wages but hey if we want to compete with the big boys we Godda start to pay the going rate

    Could Burnley going in for assambolonga (if that’s how it’s spelt) open the door for us to get Andre Gray in??

    Giimps, the avatar, saw on an article, tweet? after end of season, I think – don’t ask me how I managed to copy it onto here! Lucky guess.
    Maybe ED could use 2 lifts doon -mackems, up – Toon, instead of the hearts?
