Newcastle United keeper Rob Elliot makes a promise to fans on Twitter

Newcastle United were relegated from the Premier League this past season.

Newcastle United goalkeeper Rob Elliot has told the club’s fans on Twitter that they will make an instant return to the Premier League.

Newcastle United were relegated from the Championship this past season after a disastrous year for them.

It has been predicted that they could struggle it the second division next season, with many saying they lack the right type of players for the fight that will be needed.

Their hopes have been given a big boost by the potential stay of Rafa Benitez though, with the Spaniard transforming them since his arrival at the club.

Whether Newcastle can make a quick return to the Premier League is likely to rest on the work they can do in the summer transfer window.

The last time they were relegated they had players, such as Joey Barton and Kevin Nolan, who were ready for the fight and played a big part in their quick return.

Rafa Benitez will know that, and should he decide to stay, it would not be surprising to see him adding players with Championship experience to his squad.
