Young Newcastle United striker confirms he has left the club
Young Newcastle striker Lewis McNall has used social media to confirm his departure from St James Park.
No official retained/released list announced by Newcastle United so far, though we are finding out piecemeal as to certain people departing.
Callum Roberts has already thanked everybody via Twitter and revealed he is leaving, with Panathinaikos reported to be interested in the 22 year old winger.
Steve Harper also released a personal statement this week, explaining why he was given up his goalkeeping coaching job at NUFC.
Now 20 year old Lewis McNall has used his Twitter account to talk about his release from the club, his contract not having been renewed.
McNall was highly rated as he came through the NUFC ranks but his 13th year at Newcastle United has been a nightmare.
At the very time he needed to be able to push on and show what he could do, instead the now 20 year old striker has spent an entire season out injured with a knee injury.
It must be really tough to see your NUFC dream come to an end after 13 years at the club but good to see that Lewis McNall doesn’t appear to be letting it get him down.
Instead focusing on his next challenge at another club.
Good luck to him and all the other young players who will be looking for alternative clubs this summer when leaving Newcastle United.
Lewis McNall via Twitter:
“End of a nightmare 12 months, being out all season with a knee injury and my 13 year journey with NUFC came to an end.
“Now fully recovered, rehabilitation complete and back to full fitness, ready for what new opportunities come.
“Bring on pre season.”
