“Another waste of money. The recruitment at this joke club is absolutely horrific.”

Club is run by absolute incompetent imbeciles. Left with two strikers, both of which are prone to injury through sheer amount of running they need to do under this dinosaur of a manager. Never mind some of the other high-quality players we’ve let go. #NUFC”
“Really don’t understand how someone can be signed for nearly £10m and released on a free three years later. Terrible signing all round.”
My club is an absolute shambles. And Mike Ashley is fully responsible for it. #NUFC”
“Heartbroken doesn’t even describe it”
“Crying”

The 29-year-old featured 28 times for the across all competitions, in which he was only able to find the back of the net on two occasions (via Transfermarkt).
