The Sun is reporting today that Newcastle United are weighing up a move for Dutch U23 International, Jonathan de Guzman, who is of Jamaican and Filipino descent, and therefore would obviously love the weather in Newcastle. 😀
Jonathan de Guzman – 22 year-old free agent from Feyenoord
The Scarborough, Canada born youngster turns 23 in September, and he has been capped 4 times by Holland at U21 level already (with 4 goals), and 6 times at the U23 level, and was only recently released by his Feyenoord club, after 11 years there.
Jonathan plays attacking midfield or out on the right wing and he stands 5’8″ tall.
But other clubs are also interested in the player, and he has already been offered deals at Spanish clubs Espanyol and Villarreal, but the good news is that he would prefer a move to England to play in the Premier League.
After starting his career at local club, North Scarborough S.C., Jonathan joined the Feyenoord Youth Academy and has been there ever since.
He played 127 times for the Dutch club with 26 goals, and it seems to us this lad would be a very decent signing for the Tyneside club.
