Tragically, former Newcastle midfielder and Ghana international Christian Atsu has been found dead following the devastating earthquake in Turkey earlier this month.
This was confirmed by his agent Nana Sechere who said that Atsu’s body was recovered this morning.
Many clubs, including Newcastle and Chelsea, have paid tribute to him; remembering him as a talented player and a special person.
A loan spell at Everton and Bournemouth whilst contracted to Chelsea further adds to his legacy in the game.
Our thoughts are with his family, friends, colleagues at Hatayspor FK, and everyone affected by this tragedy. Rest in peace, Christian.
