When he arrived, Atsu was immediately loaned to Vitesse and played subsequently featured for Everton, Bournemouth, Everton and Malaga, all on loan, before his permanent transfer to Newcastle United.

“Would I be at a big European club now? Maybe, but nobody can tell me that for certain. If Chelsea want to sign you, how can you say no? I believed I could make it at Chelsea, so I went there. It didn’t happen, but that does not make it a bad move.” he said.
