An interesting interview with our impressive Chelsea loan player, Patrick van Aanholt today, as he returns to the London club.
Patrick van Aanholt – outstanding youngster
The Dutch 19 year-old made seven appearances for Newcastle and that is in addition to the 20 appearances he made earlier in the season at Coventry, where we understand he was just as outstanding.
And in an exit interview with the local Evening Chronicle, Patrick has hinted he could come back to Newcastle.
When asked what his future plans were and whether he would ever consider returning to Tyneside he replied:
“As far as that is concerned, you never know – time will tell,””Newcastle have the capabilities to win this league and if they keep winning like this, then that’s what will happen.” “It’s a great team, and I hope they win the league.”
“Of course I’ll be watching the results – I’ll be keeping in touch with all the players.” “I’m sure everything will be fine.”
We have little doubt that Newcastle would take him in a New York minute, if he was ever made available by Chelsea, and it seems Patrick really enjoyed his time at the club, where the Geordie fans immediately took to him.
He’s an honest lad who for 19 years old already looks a very good player.
Maybe we can get the lad on a season long loan next season.
One thing we’re fairly sure of is that Newcastle will try to bring in two top youngsters on loan next season, if the lads can make it to the Premier League in May.
Maybe four new signings and two loan signings for the season, will be enough to keep us above any relegation battles next season.
What do you think?
Comments very welcome.
