Kevin Mbabu has released a touching emotional personal statement to Newcastle fans.

The Swiss defender has made a permanent move to BSC Young Boys after agreeing a three year deal earlier this week.

However, the 22 year old says he felt compelled to put out this public statement to Newcastle supporters via his Twitter account.

Kevin Mbabu personal statement to Newcastle fans:

“As you’ve probably heard…I have left Newcastle, I wanted to thank everybody in the club for helping me when I was a young player.

“I’ll never forget my professional debut with the team. It was a special moment for me.

“I can still feel the atmosphere when I first played at St James Park. You fans were and still are just amazing.

“I’ve been proud to wear the black and white shirt and I gave everything I had each time I got to play for this club.

“I would have loved to give you more  but injuries and new opinions have decided differently.

“I learned a lot in my time in England but the biggest is yet to come for me.

“I work hard everyday to improve myself to become a great footballer.

“Now, a new challenge is coming for me with BSC Young Boys in Switzerland.

“I will give everything to perform in League, Cup, an European games and continue my progression.

“I wish Newcastle all the best for the new coming season back in the Premier League!

“I would like to say a warm thank you to all the Geordie fans for your wishes and support.

“I will remember all the heartfelt messages you sent me.

“Now, I turn a page.

“But, I will never forget you, the best fans in England.

    yep, one of us.

    I’m really disappointed he’s been allowed to go. Based on what I’ve seen of him, he will have a great career.

  • Doug Dacre

    Surprised they let him leave, looked a good player to me…Well, in Rafa we trust and they must have something else lined up.

  • TubbyMunky

    I would have kept the lad – rather have him at left back than Dummett.

  • Anita kick up the Hoop

    We were wrong to get rid of Aaron Hughes years ago, wrong to get rid of Mehdi Abied and buy Colback and we are wrong to send Mbabu out on loan while bringing in Hanley, Ga

  • MichaelMaximusMoose

    i would have given him another year here & tried him out in pre season

    • Mumbles

      Yeah, or even just given him the pre-season and then selling him if it didn’t work out. Shame.

  • Albert Stubbins

    good luck to Kevin- I think he will prove it was wrong to let him go this early- looked a real prospect.

  • Peter

    Good luck to him…

  • nufcslf

    Bit of a strange one especially with so little coming in. Good luck to him and one worth watching as he will only get better. Should have been kept.

  • Harry Gibson

    People still doubting the gaffas decisions! When will they learn?
