A number of Newcastle United fans are concerned after the Magpies completed the sale of Aleksandar Mitrovic.

A number of Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news that the club confirmed on their official website that Aleksandar Mitrovic has completed his permanent move away from St James' Park, joining Premier League newbies Fulham.

The striker has been heavily linked with a move away from the Magpies this summer after falling out of favour during Rafa Benitez's tenure. He made just six Premier League appearances last term before joining Slavisa Jokanovic's men on loan in January.

 

Mitrovic was a hugely influential figure for the Cottagers as they clinched promotion to the top flight, scoring 12 goals for the club on their way to their play-off final victory.

The Sun reports that the deal is worth an initial £22 million but the fee does include future add-ons. Many will be hoping that the striker's exit sparks Benitez's window into life with the Spaniard so far struggling to get new signings through the door.

Unfortunately however, many Magpies fans on social media fear that the deal is going to haunt the club in future. Mitrovic showed during his loan spell with Fulham that he can be lethal, and some fear that he could hurt his former employers during the coming campaign.

As well as that, a number of supporters are resigned to the fact that Benitez is going to do well to get a significant chunk of that £22 million put in his transfer kitty during this window with none of the club's arrivals so far coming in for big money fees.
