Transfer Rumours

Newcastle goalkeeper’s agent confirms Dutch clubs interested in summer transfer

6 years ago

Clubs in Holland are interested in taking Newcastle goalkeeper Jak Alnwick in the summer.

The player’s agent says that a number of clubs have already registered an interest from the Eredivisie but he can’t reveal which ones at the minute.

Alnwick is currently on loan at Bradford and sees his Newcastle contract run out in the summer.

With Karl Darlow set to come in from Forest and Freddy Woodman also pushing to get more involved, it could be great news for the Geordie keeper who was thrown in at the deep end when making his first team debut against Champions elect, Chelsea.

Wins over Chelsea and Everton were the highlight of his short spell standing in for Tim Krul.

However, with 19 goals conceded in only seven and a half matches, it was a harsh introduction to life at the top level.

Though it might have helped if the players in front of him had given him a bit more help.

Alnwick’s agent Narin Eggink commenting on the potential of a summer deal:

“At this point we can’t say which clubs are interested but it concerns clubs that are just under the top of the Eredivisie.”

Jak Alnwick himself has revealed that after his agent raised the possibility of going Dutch, he’d asked both Tim Krul and Siem for advice:

“I have spoken with Tim Krul and Siem de Jong about a possible transfer.

“I rate the Eredivisie very highly and they told me that it’s a great opportunity for young players to develop myself.

“I don’t know which clubs are interested, but my agent is sorting things out so I can focus on Bradford.”

Whatever happens, good luck to Jak Alnwick wherever he ends up.

You never know, the seven points Alnwick helped Newcastle add in the five and a half Premier League matches, could end up being the difference between staying up and relegation this year.
