Christian Atsu linked with Championship switch as Newcastle United deal comes to an end
Newcastle United winger Christian Atsu is on the summer radar of Championship side Huddersfield Town.
The Magpies wideman is into the final month of his contract at St James’ Park and will be released when that comes to an end in June.
And, according to reports in Yorkshire, the Terriers may well make a move for the player this summer, reuniting him with another former United winger, Rolando Aarons.
The 29-year-old has been cut out of the first-team picture by Magpies’ head coach Steve Bruce this season.

Atsu was left out of the club’s 25-man Premier League squad at the start of the season, but then added back into it in January, following the exit of DeAndre Yedlin to Galatasaray.
However, Atsu was not called onto the bench once in the final months of the 2020/21 campaign, despite Bruce’s Magpies suffering an injury crisis with Callum Wilson, Allan Saint-Maximin, Joelinton, Miguel Almiron and Ryan Fraser all spending time out of the side.
