Newcastle United's latest summer recruit made his second cameo appearance for Rafa Benitez's side in Wolfsburg on Wednesday afternoon.

The Spanish midfielder, who has arrived on loan from Wolfsburg's Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund, came on for the final 12 minutes as the Magpies recorded a 3-1 win.

Having made his debut in Saturday's defeat to Mainz, some Newcastle fans had already gotten a brief glimpse of Merino in action.

And it hasn't taken much longer for them to become fully bowled over by the 21-year-old's talent, with one Twitter user describing him as "world class", after he won back possession inside his own box and pinged a 40-yard pass with the outside of his left boot.

Here's what the rest of them are saying about the Newcastle new boy:

According to The Chronicle, Merino will become a permanent Newcastle player once he's played 20 times for his temporary employers, at a cost of £6.5 million.

And if he continues in this vein, the Magpies will hope that milestone is reached before other clubs catch on.
