Roberto Martinez proved right after ‘mattress-gate’ incident but final squad has still seen Newcastle’s Matz Sels left at home.
Thursday morning sees media in Belgium report Newcastle have now offered a ‘bargain’ double deal to Anderlecht.
HLN reveal Newcastle United and Anderlecht very close to reaching agreement for permanent transfer of Matz Sels, as Rafa begins clear out.
Matz Sels named in Belgium’s initial World Cup list of 28, one of three Premier League goalkeepers in the squad.
Matz Sels “Returning to Newcastle would be difficult. I am open to a conversation (to sign permanently for Anderlecht).”
Matz Sels “By staying with Newcastle I certainly did not stand a chance.”
It was zero to hero for Matz Sels after over 5 weeks without a league start, plus better news (in a way) for Achraf Lazaar.
Matz Sels is the highest paid player ever to play in the Belgian League but now finding himself left on the sidelines.
