Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez has decided not to offer Callum Roberts a new contract.

Cal Roberts gives the thumbs up during the Newcastle United Training session at Carton House on July 13, 2018, in Kildare, Ireland.

Some Newcastle United fans think that Rafael Benitez has made an error by letting Callum Roberts leave.

Roberts has been on the verge of making a breakthrough in Newcastle’s team for some time, but just hasn’t been able to make that final step.

 

The young winger has trained with Newcastle’s first-team and been on pre-season tours, but he never forced his way into Benitez’s line-up like Sean Longstaff did this season.

Roberts has now been told that his contract at Newcastle will not be renewed.

The young winger confirmed that he had left St. James’ Park on social media last night.

And some Newcastle fans could not hide their disappointment at the decision.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Roberts is already wanted by a host of Championship clubs and by Panathinaikos, according to SDNA.

The 22-year-old leaves Newcastle having made two appearances for the first-team.
