Mitro Update

As reported by the Daily Mail, Newcastle’s Serbian hitman Aleksander Mitrovic has again shown his commitment to the cause by stating his desire to fire Newcastle back to the top flight, despite talk of a big money move to Italy.

Mitrovic, who has been in fine form lately, said: ‘I really don’t know anything about that. It’s always nice when big clubs are interested in you.

‘But I am in Newcastle and I want to come back to the Premier League. We are in a good way, I am just focusing on Newcastle and I want to score goals for them.

‘We have a few big games coming up. We have Leeds, Hull, Blackburn so they are tough games. But we know what we want from the season.

‘We have to keep working hard to try and stay at the top until the end of the season. With the players we have we should be at the top.’

Hopefully this will go some way to reassuring the Newcastle faithful that their target man will be staying on Tyneside.
