Jetro Willems has hinted that Newcastle and Frankfurt may already have an agreement in place over his potential permanent move to St James’ Park.
This comes from his latest interview with the Chronicle, with his comments backing up recent reports claiming we can sign him for a fee in excess of £10m when his loan expires this summer.
“I heard some things that the club have already agreed with Frankfurt.
“I haven’t spoken to them.”
“We will see, but it will be nice.
“I don’t know if people think I am doing my job well but I am feeling good.”
With Matt Ritchie finally fit again, Willems now has real competition and faces a fight to keep a hold of his starting spot at left wing-back, however it’s just as well we signed him given the former Bournemouth man has been out injured since August.
