'Beyond a joke', 'Absolutely pathetic' – Newcastle fans react as huge transfer development reported

Newcastle fans are absolutely gutted after it was reported that a 6pm deadline had passed for striker Nicolai Jorgensen, without an improved bid being made for the striker.
Dutch outlet AD claimed that Feyenoord had set the deadline as they have a crunch cup quarter-final against PSV on Wednesday and don’t want anything to disrupt their preparations.
It is claimed that Newcastle did table two bids, with the second one being for £15million but Feyenoord were holding out for at least £17.5million and the deal now looks dead in the water.
One fan pointed out that the club missed out on a player from haggling over £5million when relegation could cost them that many, many times over.
Another fan just summed up his feelings by saying, “Absolutely pathetic”.
Rafa Benitez will now have to turn his attention to other striker targets with time fast running out before the Wednesday deadline.
Here is a selection of reactions from gutted newcastle fans on hearing the news:
