Newcastle In Talks To Sign Young Goalkeeper


Sky Sports is reporting that Newcastle are in talks with PSV over the transfer of their 22 year-old 6’3″ Dutch U21 goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet, who we are interested in bringing to Tyneside.

Jeroen Zoet 99

Jeroen Zoet – 22 year-old Dutch goalkeeper

The news is that Newcastle want to bring in a young goalkeeper to replace Steve Harper, and challenge Tim Krul and Rob Elliot for the number one position on Tyneside, and the fee is thought to be around £2M.

On transfermarkt.com he is listed as being worth €2M, which is around £1.7M, and that’s the bid that was reported to be turned down a couple of days ago by PSV, if reports are to be believed.

Jeroen has spent the last two seasons out on loan at RKC Waalwijk, and he has looked a good young goalkeeper, and if the fee is right Jeroen could fill the hole left by veteran Steve Harper, and he will only improve as he acquires more experience.

There had been some news that Zoet was coming in because Krul was moving to Arsenal, but that Arsenal deal for Krul is probably not true, and the latest we saw was that Arsene Wenger would bid £7M for the Dutch International.

tim krul yes!

Tim Krul – Newcastle number one goalkeeper

Tim is worth a lot more money than £7M, and Mike Ashley would want at least twice that amount to allow the 25 year-old to leave Tyneside.

And of course Tim is very happy on Tyneside, where he’s been since 2005, when Graham Souness brought him in (or was it Joe Kinnear?), and he’s progressed through the ranks to become the number one goalkeeper for the last two seasons.

We think Zoet would be a good signing for Newcastle, and then we’d have very capable goalkeepers at the club.

    Dutch = Krul the conquerors mate (by geographic location) so therefore a worthy number2 IMO

    I only hope this is a replacement for Harper and not because the fat controller and the gobshite JFK are debating cashing in on Krul!!!

    It’s just very very odd that we have talked about needing a replacement for Carroll, and then Ba, and pacey wingers, attacking players, coupled with an additional CB – so why on earth would our first real acquisition be a young GK to warm the bench and pick up £15-25K each week for potentially/obviously doing nothing to push players or make a difference?!

    He seems to have a good reputation and there’s nothing wrong in buying talented young players if they’re going to be utilized. But I really think we should be focusing all our attention in bringing in 2 very decent proven attacking players.

    Torq 2-3 years time his valuation will sky rocket if he gets playing time. The only way that will happen if Krul gets injured god forbid

    if this young lad comes in , krul will be sold . ash would not pay 2M for an understudy keeper. he struggles to pay 2M for a CF.

    Ashley didnt struggle to bid £9M for Cisse or outbid other clubs to sign Ba.

    Another post that is pure fiction.

    He might come learn from Krul for a year and then he’s prepared to take over next year.

    I can’t be the only one who doesn’t rate Elliott? Not s bad shot stopper but none of our players should come with the tag ‘not a bad’ such and such

    Lads i feel a striker is in the pipe line and will be delivered by 2mo!!! watch this space… Remy not Bent… and one more preferbally siem de jong… Adam Cambell is going to be phenomenal though… im getting wet just thinking about his rise to the stars!

    this lads going to be a holland international and must be close to krull’s quality ! i dont see a problem with this tbh as krull wasted too many ball’s last year kicking the ball into no mans land but is a brilliant keeper and def our 1st choice and elliott had good distribution but i doubt will ever be one of englands best keepers.

    and the fact harper has left and he did play games for us last season means we may need a 3rd keeper if alnwick is not what we expect of him.

    with krull and him trying to be main internation keepers it can only make them play better imo.

    4.3 m £ price tag on Boudebouz. Why haven’t we sold Obertan and bought this guy already?

    I could live with not getting de jong, I just dont want anyone else in the league to have him, is that fair?

    Id be happy with remy, bent, zoet a LW and a young RB shouldn’t cost much more than 18 total.

    If he ends up anything like Krul, who still has his best years to come, surely worth snapping up. Top notch keepers are hard to come by.

    Realistically get Remy, De Jong and a winger, my choice would be Nacer Chadli, signed and draft a couple of good prospects in and I think that would be a good summers work.

    If we have that team and endure a normal amount of injuries then anything lower than 8th next season would be disappointing. The top 6 I think rights itself and looks so hard to break into. Our squad the 7th most expensive in the PL is £140m Liverpool in 6th are £245m!!

    Its not just the money they can spend. When you look at the top 6 they all have at least 1 match winner who will win them games.

    City – Toure, Silva, Aguero
    UTD – RVP, Rooney, Kagawa (will be amazing this season)
    Chelsea – Mata, Lamps, Hazard
    Spurs – Bale
    Gunners – Hmmm They either all play really good or all crap!
    Liverpool – Suarez, Gerrard.

    I think that’s the big difference between the top 6 and the rest having them match winners perform week in week out clocking them points. Far to many of our match winners perform outstanding two or three games a season and go missing the rest!!

    have we had anything concrete on siem ? even pardew or anyone at the club mentioning anything about him ?

    personaly i think this has just come from the fact we was after de-jong some seasons ago and are expecting us to be still after him if we ever was !

    There is also this going around rounds:
    Liverpool have had a combine 32.5m bid accepted for duo Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld.

    I couldn’t find the source references but yeah it’s about Liverpool.

    Sean @17 – stick any half decent GK in and he will become world class after a few games due to our tactical defence strategy – ie> bomb forward and leave open spaces for the opposition to attack 😉
