Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez is happy so far with the output of new signing Christian Atsu.
The Ghanaian joined the Magpies last month on a season-long loan from Chelsea, having spent the previous season on a similar short-term deal at Spanish side Malaga.
Although the winger did not feature in the 2-0 win at Derby County over the weekend, he is expected to be given his first run-out against Queens Park Rangers on Tuesday.
â€œItâ€™s interesting because we have had very good reports," Benitez told the Chronicle.
â€œSome people were a little concerned [about his lack of game-time] but what we have seen and the info we have is quite good. He will settle down and get fit.
â€œIn training, he has been offering the things we expect from him.
"We are really pleased because heâ€™s the kind of winger we were looking for.
â€œHopefully he can give us what we are looking for. I am sure he will give us good games, assists and some good goals.â€
Atsu has also previously spent time with FC Porto and Rio Ave in Portugal, Dutch outfit Vitesse Arnhem as well as Premier League sides Everton and Bournemouth.
