Newcastle are set to be handed one last taunt from rivals Sunderland before they slip back into the Championship next season.
A group of Sunderland fans have apparently stumped up the cash to fly a plane over St James' Park on the final day of the season with a sign reading: 'AUF WIEDERSEHEN PREM'.
On Saturday, aerial advertising company Air Ads posted this message on Twitter.

Sunderland confirmed their safety, and the relegation of their derby rivals, with a 3-0 win over Everton in midweek.
Following that a crowdfunding page was created on gofundme.com by 'SAFC AWAY DAYS', with the stated aim of the project being to "organise a fly-past banner over St James' Park to allow us to say bye to our neighbours for a little while".
Four donations have been made, with an anonymous one of just over £1,000 accounting for virtually the whole of the total amount raised. The page says £900 will be for the aircraft trailing the banner, with the rest going to charity.
The idea has, however, drawn criticism from Sunderland fans who think it is over-stepping the boundaries of banter.
Writing on the gofundme page, one said: "Absolutely the wrong thing to do. As a Sunderland supporter you should have a bit of dignity and be grateful that it wasn't us. It could so well have been but for a good run at the end. I want no part of this whatsoever. Shocking behaviour if you ask me."
Another says: "This is just pathetic, we have relegated them isn't that enough? What good will come from this?"
Last year, an Air Ads plane flew a banner displaying the message '5 IN A ROW 5UNDERLAND' over St James' Park during a match there - a reference to Newcastle's run of derby defeats to the Wearsiders.
