Facundo Ferreyra has reportedly made his last Newcastle United appearance

Newcastle United signed Facundo Ferreyra last summer, but he has failed to make any sort of impression.

Facundo Ferreyra will leave Newcastle United at the end of the season without playing for their senior side, according to a report in the Shields Gazette.

Ferreyra was signed last summer on loan from Shakhtar Donetsk, but the transfer has not worked out for either the player or the club, with the striker set to depart St. James' Park without making a competitive appearance.

The Argentine has only played for the club's development side throughout his time on Tyneside and it seems that his last appearance for the Under-21's was made last night.

Ferreyra started for Newcastle's reserves in their match against West Bromwich Albion, which they lost 3-2. 

Ferreyra signed off by getting an assist in the fixture, but he will be very disappointed to have failed to make any sort of impression. 

The expectation was that Ferreyra would have been able to enhance Newcastle's attacking threat, but both Alan Pardew and John Carver consistently overlooked him.

It seems that he has not been able to change that opinion either, with the front-man said not to be in contention to play in either of the Magpies last two games.
