Newcastle fans react as Adam Wilson reportedly signs new contract

Newcastle United have reportedly agreed a new deal with young winger Adam Wilson despite a tumultuous spell with numerous injuries over the past couple of seasons – and Toon supporters have reacted on Twitter.

Wilson, 20, has struggled to kick on at Newcastle despite being a four-time England Under-18 international and even attracting interest from the Championship a couple of seasons ago. Calf and thigh problems have been the reason for just that.

The winger, though, has shown promise when fit. Able to play on either flank or in the number 10 role, Wilson has clocked up 36 league and cup appearances for the club’s second string – having a hand in eight goals.

Just this season, he has managed seven Premier League 2 appearances and has netted two times. The Chronicle state that Newcastle have agreed terms with the highly-rated attacker, giving Wilson a chance to play catch-up and reach his potential.

The report states that Wilson attracted interest from Championship side Blackburn a couple of seasons ago, and the winger may now need a loan spell given Matt Ritchie, Miguel Almiron, Joelinton and Allan Saint-Maximin are ahead in the pecking order.

Newcastle supporters have reacted on Twitter to the reported news that the club have agreed a new deal for Wilson this week, and many are happy to see he has put pen to paper. Some fans want game time for Wilson, amid the contract news.
