The promising midfielder who has been on loan to, Vitesse, Everton, Bournemouth, Malaga and Newcastle in the past 4 years is finally at the verge of signing a permanent deal with the Magpies.
After impressing in the championship with Newcastle and helping them gain their promotion back to the Premier League, the Ghanaian star Christian Atsu has reportedly been offered a deal worth 6.5 million pounds to stay with the club for four years. Netting 5 times in 35 appearances would be impressive for a lot of great midfielders.
Atsu was signed in 2013 by Chelsea, but they immediately loaned him to Vitesse and since then his life has been from one loan move to the next. Could this deal be an indication that the dust has finally settled for the African talent? And could this be an opportunity for him to establish himself in one club and possibly become a local hero at the St James’ Park?
Well, only the future could really tell.
