Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez has revealed that he is yet to make a decision on Christian Atsu‘s future after the winger found the net in the 2-0 victory over Cardiff City on Friday night.

Atsu, who is coming to the end of his season-long loan from Chelsea, scored a superb free-kick, but Benitez insisted that he still has some difficult decisions to make as he prepares to assemble his squad for next season.

As reported by Shields Gazette, Benitez said: “The future of a player doesn’t change with one action or goal.

“We know that he’s a good player. We have to decide. I’m really pleased with him. We have to see where we are in terms of the squad and all these things.”

Having already secured promotion to the Premier League, Newcastle’s win last night kept their hopes of winning the Championship title alive.

Atsu has certainly played his part this season, scoring five goals and creating 27 chances in the Championship, although it remains to be seen where his long term future lies.

Now 25, Atsu has been a Chelsea player since 2013 but has spent the ensuing period out on loan, taking in spells at Vitesse Arnhem, Everton, Bournemouth and Malaga prior to linking up with Newcastle.
