DeAndre Yedlin has posted an emotional goodbye to Newcastle fans after a respectable four-and-a-half years on Tyneside came to an end on deadline day.
The American was signed by Rafa Benitez ahead of our Championship campaign in 2016 and went on to make 125 appearances in a black-and-white shirt.
He was an important piece of the promotion puzzle in his debut season, cementing himself as our first choice right back and putting in some stellar displays down the flank.
Here is what he posted on Instagram following his transfer to Galatasaray:
It was good to see the outpour of tributes to Yedlin following his transfer on Monday night.
Yes, he may not be the best footballer we ever had, but he played a vital role in our recent seasons and our supporters can definitely respect the effort he put in during that Championship season.
A popular character with frightening pace whose presence and smiles will be missed off the pitch I’m sure.
We wish you all the best, DeAndre.
