Nice easy one to start off with, which club did Newcastle United sign Shearer from in 1996?

They claim that the Frenchman has suffered a thigh injury that he picked up in a friendly game against Hull City before the Premier League’s restart.

Lejeune actually scored in that match as well, but Steve Bruce has confirmed that he picked up the thigh injury.

This has drawn a reaction from these Newcastle fans who are gutted for Lejeune.

Would you keep Lejeune or sell him?

The Toon signed the 29-year-old in the summer of 2017, and he has only made 46 appearances for Newcastle’s first team since then because of various injuries.

The main ones he has suffered were both knee injuries which kept him out for 16 games and 21 games respectively.

Therefore, it seems that this latest news regarding Lejeune has annoyed these Toon fans who now want him sold in the summer.

The Frenchman has two years left on his contract, but he is only valued at £4.32m by Transfermarkt now, so if the Toon were to sell him, they might not get that much for him.

Lejeune has had a torrid time with injuries since he moved to St. James’ Park, and judging by some of the replies; some Newcastle fans would like to see him move on this summer.

If he does move on, then many Toon fans might remember his last game for a long time as he scored a dramatic brace in the 2-2 draw against Everton to snatch a point for Newcastle.

It will be interesting to see if Newcastle decide to keep the 29-year-old or if they feel it is now time for him to leave the club.
