Newcastle left-back Jose Enrique has launched a scathing attack on the club's transfer policy.
The Spaniard, who has been linked with a move away from St James' Park for the majority of this summer, accused his employers of a lack of ambition and also claims he had been offered no improvement on his current salary.
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew said in May that the club would make Enrique a "fantastic" contract offer.
The 25-year-old has a year to run on his existing deal and no progress has been made on an extension, to the club's frustration.
Newcastle came under fire in this evening's series of posts by the defender on social networking site Twitter.
Beginning in Spanish, Enrique claimed: "The club is allowing all the major players of the team to go. Seriously, do you think it is the fault of the players? Andy (Carroll), nobby (Kevin Nolan) etc etc.
"This club will never again fight to be among the top 6 again with this policy."
Paying tribute to the Tyneside club's fans, he added: "I think you fans are the best and you deserve the best, not what they are doing with the club. Thanks to everyone for supporting me."
Switching to English in response to another poster, he then wrote: "The [sic] give the money I have already. They lie all the time. But is no for money is because they don't want spend in the club and bring quality players that's why everybody go."
Enrique, who joined Newcastle from Villarreal in 2007, has reportedly drawn interest from Liverpool and Arsenal this summer.
