As reported by the Chronicle, Rafa Benitez has hit out at claims that Christian Atsu could leave the club this month.
Atsu, who is currently on loan at Newcastle from his parent club Chelsea, had been linked with a move to Turkey this window.
When Benitez was asked about this potential move, he said: “No chance,”
“I am in contact with the three players in Africa and especially Atsu.
“I will tell you now that he is really pleased and really happy here.
“We have the player on loan with an option.
“Nothing has changed, the player is happy, we have the control and a very good relationship with Chelsea.”
“So everything is fine
Atsu is undoubtedly one of the most talented players in the Newcastle squad and will be essential to create chances, if the side are to be successful this season.
He finally seems settled on Tyneside and I would love to see him join permanently.
