Newcastle fans react to 24-year-old quitting the club

By Danny Wright

Newcastle fans have remained blasé on Twitter over Florian Thavin’s claims that he will no longer play for the club again.

The 24-year-old has been on loan at Marseille since January 2016 but he has since revealed to French radio station RMC that his deal at the French club became a permanent one as soon as he played three games for the club.

He added that he has ‘no doubts’ about playing for the Ligue 1 outfit next season.

Thauvin was a £12million signing at St. James’ Park in 2015 but he failed to make any impact whatsoever in his short time at the club.

The French winger scored once and set up two goals in 16 appearances for the Magpies before he was sent back to Marseille.

Despite his improved form back in his home country, the Toon Army don’t seem to mind that they have seen the back of Thauvin once and for good.

Here are a selection of tweets from Newcastle supporters about Thauvin:

This season, Thauvin has been lethal for his Ligue 1 employers.

In 35 appearances in all competitions, the winger has scored 10 goals and bagged eight assists.

He is joined in an impressive Marseille squad with other former Premier League players such as Patrice Evra, Remy Cabella and January signing Dimitri Payet.
