News today is that PSV Eindhoven want £6M for their Dutch International left-back Erik Pieters.
Erik Pieters – £6M and £30K/week – not bad at all
And the player’s wage demands are said to be around £30K/week, which is less that Jose Enrique’s £45K/week he was getting on Tyneside for four years, and of course we received £6M for Jose from Liverpool last week.
So sign Pieters up, and quickly too!
The Evening Chronicle is reporting today that talks with Newcastle and PSV Technical Director Marcel Brands are said to be “ongoing”, but surely this would be an excellent deal for the Tyneside club.
Pieters played the full game for PSV over the weekend and attended his grandmother’s funeral yesterday, and he is expected to want to know what is happening with his potential move to Newcastle today from his club PSV.
Apparently Erik has made it abundantly clear he wants to be transferred to Newcastle, and join up with his big pal, goalkeeper Tim Krul, on Tyneside.
Let’s get this boy signed up as soon as possible.
Newcastle have also been linked today, in the Paris media, with a possible move for Lyon left-back Aly Cissokho, at around £8M.
Comments always welcome.
