Rafa Remains Coy About Newcastle Sharpshooter`s Future

Rafa Remains Coy About Newcastle Sharpshooter`s Future

Rafa has told the Chronicle that Aleksandar Mitrovic`s future will be decided at the end of the season.

The Serbian ace has been in excellent form during a loan spell at Fulham, and when asked about the 23 year old`s recent performances, our manager said:

'There are two ways to analyse this. One is Mitrovic is scoring goals in the Championship. It`s good news for him and us. Two, he is playing before the World Cup and he is our player. We then have to discuss his future in May. In May we will see and if he is doing well, fine no problem.'

Mitro has scored seven goals in his five games for the Cottagers, scoring another brace against Preston North End at the weekend, following the two goals he scored four days earlier versus Sheffield United.

The gaffer`s comments don`t seem to show a great deal of enthusiasm about our forward`s displays, but I could be wrong. He explained the striker`s lack of games for us as purely down to Dwight Gayle`s form, but the signing of Islam Slimani in January would suggest otherwise.

Fulham don`t have the option to buy the Serbian international at the end of the season, so there is a chance that he could make a return to the first team fold for the start of next campaign.

However, despite the fact he is smashing in the goals in the Championship, I think Rafa has already moved on. What do you think? Will Mitrovic be at Newcastle next season?
