Done deal: International winger pictured in club jersey as Chelsea finalise deadline day transfer deal


Chelsea have announced on their official website that Ghanaian international winger Christian Atsu has joined Newcastle on loan for the rest of the 2016/17 season.

The 24-year-old was all smiles as he completed his move from Stamford Bridge to the St. James' Park.

A photo of the player in his new jersey was uploaded to the Magpies official website yesterday evening.

"I'm very happy to be at Newcastle," said Atsu.

"It's a very big club. They have good facilities and I think Newcastle have one of the best coaches in the world.

"St. James' Park is a fantastic stadium with 50,000 fans; the fans here really love football so much and I can't wait to play at this stadium in front of the fans."

Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez said: "I agreed with our fans that we needed to bring in another winger, so I am very happy to welcome Christian to the Club.

"He has good ability and pace in the wide areas and also has good experience of English football.

"He has a different style of play to the other players we have at the moment and that will be important for the squad."
