Newcastle United fans have not had too much to shout about this season as their club is still waiting for a Premier League victory 10 games into the campaign, scoring just six goals in the process.

Rafael Benitez’s side is in need of a huge boost when the January transfer window reopens and, while the mid-season window is months away from opening, the club confirmed a significant deal today in the form of a new contract.

Jamaal Lascelles has put pen to paper on a new six-year deal at St. James’ Park, tying the Magpies’ captain down until 2024 and strengthing the club’s control on his future.

While the 24-year-old continues to be linked with the likes of Chelsea, Lascelles’ willingness to pen a new deal shows he is dedicated to the cause and, should push come to shove, Newcastle can now expect a higher price if they do agree to a sale.

After sharing the news on Twitter, many fans responded with their thoughts and we have gathered some of the best replies below.
