Ollie Watkins is likely to be a man in-demand after reports claimed the Brentford striker has a £18million release clause in his contract after the Bees failed to gain promotion – and Newcastle supporters have reacted on Twitter.

Watkins, 23, has been in sensational form for Thomas Frank’s side – scoring 26 goals and propelling his side into the Championship play-offs. But his side lost in extra-time to Fulham at Wembley on Tuesday night.

The Telegraph have claimed that because Brentford have failed to gain promotion, Watkins will be allowed to go for just £18million due to an exit clause in his current deal. Aston Villa are leading the charge for his signature.
