18 Feb 23

We are profoundly saddened to learn that our former player Christian Atsu tragically lost his life in Turkey's devastating earthquakes

A talented player and a special person, he will always be fondly remembered by our players, staff and supporters.A proud Ghanaian who played for his country on 65 occasions, Christian represented our club between 2016 and 2021, making 121 appearances.Initially joining on loan, he played a key role in the Magpies squad that secured the Championship title in 2017 before making a permanent move to help us establish our place back in the Premier League.After leaving St. James' Park in 2021, he joined Saudi Pro League side Al Raed FC before moving to Turkey with Hatayspor in summer 2022.Our thoughts are with Christian's loved ones and with the people of Turkey, Syria and neighbouring territories at this incredibly difficult time.
