Habib Beye has set-aside his own financial ambitions and given Alan Shearer a huge boost by declaring his allegiance to the Toon cause.

Beye said: ‘The players who will be here next year must put this club back in the Premier League.

‘I’m in – I’m a Newcastle player.

‘I’m sad like everyone else.

‘I’m under contract, and I will be here next year to put this club back in the Premier League.

‘I have played for Newcastle for two years and I love this club.’

The Senegal right-back added: ‘Everyone is responsible for this situation. Every player is responsible.

‘Everybody must understand it’s not just about 11 players or 18 players.

‘It’s about a city and the fans, and a lot of people who work at this club.

‘It’s hard to think about.’

The 31-year-old is a firm favourite among the Magpies fans and will be a key player next season, as Newcastle United prepare to come straight back up to the Premiership.
