Newcastle fans have discussed Chronicle article on Joelinton.
The Brazilian became the Magpies’ record signing from Hoffenheim last summer and was expected to sparkle at St. James’ Park.
However, the forward has scored just one goal in 26 Premier League appearances. He has totally netted 24 times, contributing to Steve Bruce’s side in the league.
The Chronicle has been discussing the 23-year-old in an article, revealing the valuation of the player has been dropped since he joined Newcastle.
Some club fans have reacted, commenting on Twitter.
So valued at £27M. I’d snap someones hands of for even half of that. Good luck getting a buyer!

He’s not worth 27p

£31 million we wouldn’t be able to get £3.1 million for him. Unfortunately he’s going be another Colback or Saviet and sit here until his contract expires only difference is he’s still getting game time.

Bought for business NOT footballing (his job!) Reasons. Simply shocking. Nickson must be blind or another yes man, who is incompetent.

The fact that he was bought as an investment is even worse than him being bought as a player. Must be in the top three worst transfer records anywhere.

We only bought Joelinton because fat Mike saw the potential profit in him… It’s money first football second with him.

hes happy to tear back and defend but unable to get the other way as asm and miggy are too quick, needs to br played as a 2nd striker with a pacey one next to him ala shearer and bellamy. so he has more time to enter the box. might aswell try it with allan
