Amid much amusement from Newcastle fans, the Dutch media have today confirmed that Siem de Jong has passed his medical to join PSV on loan.
Siem de Jong interview “Rafael Benitez has said he sees a future for me at the club but feels that I need matches at a level to judge me…I had given Ajax the first option. Now I hope to get started at PSV.”
It all sounds a bit of a joke, that Newcastle took striker Luuk de Jong on loan and Alan Pardew played him in midfield where he didn’t even have a shot, never mind get a goal…
Whilst Luuk de Jong has been scoring 49 goals in 78 games for PSV, in his 18 months at Newcastle, Siem de Jong has made just four Premier League starts and scored a single goal in the league.
Manchester United exited the Champions League and it was solid gold TV for the neutral and especially Siem de Jong & Gini Wijnaldum.
It is disappointment for Newcastle pair Daryl Janmaat and Tim Krul, with both of them left on the bench for Holland v Turkey on Saturday night.
Siem de Jong has had a nightmare season but have Newcastle had a similar nightmare experience with brother Luuk de Jong?
German international striker Max Kruse has been approached by Newcastle United according to media reports.
After scoring one goal in four Eredivisie appearances for PSV, Luuk De Jong has reminded National Coach Guus Hiddink that he still has something to offer.
Writer John Martin believes it is nailed on that Luuk De Jong will be reunited with brother Siem on Tyneside but what would that mean for NUFC on the pitch?
