Former PSV youngster Patrick van Aanholt says he cannot wait to get started at Newcastle.
Patrick van Aanholt – delighted to be at Newcastle
Patrick has talked to the Newcastle official site today:
“I only found very late on Thursday night and came straight up to Newcastle on Friday morning,”
“It all happened very quickly but it is a fantastic opportunity and I can’t wait.”
“At first when I got the call I thought it must be a joke, but then I realized the left-back Jose Enrique was injured during the week.”
“This is a fantastic opportunity for me to play game with a good team and some very good players.”
“It’s a very big club and I’m very happy to be here.” “It’s a chance to get more experience whilst also helping the team stay at the top of the league.”
We expect Patrick to start at left-back today at Leicester, since he’s only here a month, and Chris will want to get him bedded in quickly.
If he does well, Patrick may become a longer term target of the club – certainly his credentials suggest he could be a great player in the making, and the lad played extremely well in his 20 games for Coventry City this season.
