Newcastle fans have been reacting on Twitter to comments that Matz Sels made to Sport Voetbal Magazine where he suggested that he could still have a future at St James' Park when he returns from his loan spell at the end of the season.
However, a string of mistakes saw the 26-year-old quickly fall out of favour and it surprised few fans when he left the club last summer to join Anderlecht on loan for the campaign. What may surprise them however, is that Sels has suggested that he may have a future with the Magpies.
In comments reported by Sport Voetbal Magazine, Sels has suggested that staying with the Belgian side or returning to his parent club are both possibilities that he would be prepared to consider when the campaign concludes.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the majority of the Newcastle fans have suggested that there is no place at St James' for Sels as Martin Dubravka continues to prove hugely impressive for the Magpies following his January loan switch. If the club could keep the Slovakian, it is highly likely that the large majority would prefer him to stick around rather than see Sels return.
Interestingly however, there has been some support for Sels. Some Newcastle fans believe that the stopper was not given enough of a chance to adapt to life in England and is a much better goalkeeper than what they saw during his brief run in the first-team last term.
Here is the best of the reaction to Sels' latest comments...

Sels could be a top keeper for us, the same as always nufc fans have been to quick to write him off— David Baty (@Vomero81) April 18, 2018
No he doesn’t I would have my nan in goal— Stephen Smith (@stephen382) April 18, 2018
Good attitude but I’m afraid he’s got no future here. pic.twitter.com/s8sPhLiJP1— Kain Watson (@kainnufc) April 18, 2018
There's obviously a great keeper in there somewhere, it just didn't happen for him at #nufc.— SegedunumSkipLXXVII (@skipwallsend77) April 18, 2018
Shame for him really but that ship has sailed sadly. There's no future here for him. Best of luck to him
Tbf it didn’t seem obvious that Diame had a future at Newcastle back in November. Sels has a long way to go to prove anyone wrong though. Was awful at the start of last season, Dubravka looks a much better keeper.— Sharpie (@MonsieurSharp) April 19, 2018
