Moussa Sissoko reacts on Twitter to Newcastle result, fans respond

Newcastle beat Reading 4-1.

Newcastle United recorded their first Championship win of the season on Wednesday night, comfortably seeing off Reading.

After a pair of shock opening losses to Fulham and Huddersfield, they faced a team which were well beaten by Wolves days earlier.

Newcastle's 4-1 win showed just why the pre-season predictions they would run riot in the league looked smart, and fans will hope there are many more nights like this to come.

One man watching on at St James' Park was France international Moussa Sissoko, who was not involved for the Toon, as rumours of an expensive transfer away from the club persist.

Sissoko sent a message out on Twitter after the game, congratulating the team on the successful result.

After poor displays last season and his not so subtle hints for a transfer away from the club, it seems only a matter of time before Sissoko departs, but it depends if any club is willing to pay Newcastle's asking price.

The reaction from fans to Sissoko's tweets make interesting reading, with not all giving up hope of him appearing for the club again. Here is a selection below...
