Newcastle United’s Siem De Jong – Video Special
Newcastle United’s latest signing,[intlink id=”44460″ type=”post”]Siem De Jong[/intlink], has made his name in Holland with an outstanding 75 goals in the last five seasons, including three against Manchester City in the Champions League two years ago.
Most of his goals of course have come in the Dutch domestic league and the hope is that he can translate that goalscoring form to the higher standard of the Premier League, if he can do that then the rumoured £6m transfer fee will look like peanuts.
Below we bring you a compilation of some of De Jong’s collection of real quality goals.
As you will see he has a great shot on him but isn’t a replacement for Yohan Cabaye, the Dutch international is a proper number ten and plays as a second striker rather than as a midfielder. Therefore it looks as though we definitely still need added creativity in midfield to bring the best out of the new signing, unless Hatem Ben Arfa is somehow rehabilitated under Alan Pardew.
Have a look at the goals and let’s hope he can get the service at Newcastle and find the room in the Premier League to replicate his Ajax form.
At least the future is a little brighter/orange this morning.
