By Craig Hope
HABIB Beye has nailed his colours to the black-and-white mast with the popular Newcastle United defender insisting that he wants to help fire the club back into the Premier League next season.
The 31-year-old is a firm favourite among the Geordie faithful and this news will come as music to the ears of supporters who were left floored following Sunday's relegation from the top flight.
Beye said: "The players who will be here next year must put this club back in the Premier League.
"I'm in - I'm a Newcastle player.
"I'm sad like everyone else.
"I'm under contract, and I will be here next year to put this club back in the Premier League.
"I have played for Newcastle for two years and I love this club."
He added: "Everyone is responsible for this situation. Every player is responsible.
"Everybody must understand it's not just about 11 players or 18 players.
"It's about a city and the fans, and a lot of people who work at this club.
"It's hard to think about."
