Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news that Jesus Gamez has joined the club.

The defender completed a move from Atletico Madrid on Friday to become Rafa Benitez’s fourth signing of the summer transfer window.

His arrival follows the captures of Matz Sels, Dwight Gayle and Matt Ritchie, who all joined the club last week.

He has been brought in to try and improve a Newcastle United defender that struggled as they were relegated from the Premier League last season.

He also brings some much needed experience to the Magpies line up, with his time at Atletico Madrid playing in the Champions League sure to have been one factor that made Benitez keen on a move.

He is something of an impressive capture for the Spaniard, and Newcastle fans have reacted on Twitter to his move.

It will now be interesting to see what effect that Gamez’s arrival at the club has on Daryl Janmaat’s future.

The Dutchman was one of several first team stars linked with an exit this summer following their relegation to the Championship.

The club would have been loathe to lose him given they had nobody as back up but Gamez’s arrival changes that, and it would not be surprising to see the Dutchman depart as a result.
