Newcastle United fans react to Mohamed Diame performance

Newcastle's Mohamed Diame celebrates scoring their second goal

Newcastle United fans were happy with the 29-year-old on Saturday.

Newcastle United fans were left swooning over Mohamed Diame's performance against Birmingham City on Saturday.

The Magpies reclaimed top spot in the Championship with a rousing 4-0 victory over the Blues, with Dwight Gayle netting a hat-trick.

Another man who impressed was Diame in what was probably his best performance in a Newcastle shirt following his £4.5 million switch from Hull in the summer.

The 29-year-old arrived on Tyneside as a fine asset, having helped the Tigers to Premier League promotion just a few months previous.

But it was a difficult start to life at St James's Park for the Senegal international and Newcastle fans are hoping that he kicks on from here.

Diame, who also got a fine assist for Gayle's first-half opener, is yet to open his account in the Championship in the goalscoring stakes, and that is certainly an area to improve on.
