Christian Atsu's future doesn’t change with one action or goal - Rafa Benitez

Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez says he is yet to make a decision on the future of Christian Atsu.

The winger scored his fourth goal of the season in Newcastle United’s 2-0 win over Cardiff City last night.

Atsu, on a season-long loan from Chelsea, opened the scoring with a well-struck free-kick early in the second half.

Isaac Hayden added a second goal for Benitez’s promoted side, who are one point behind Championship leaders Brighton.

Atsu hopes to ''settle'' at a club this summer after a nomadic few years on loan away from Stamford Bridge.

Benitez, however, was coy about Atsu’s future when he was asked about the 25-year-old after his team’s win the Cardiff City Stadium.

''The future of a player doesn’t change with one action or goal,'' said Benitez.

''We know that he’s a good player. We have to decide. I'm really pleased with him. We have to see where we are in terms of the squad and all these things.''
