Jelle Vossen is a Belgium International striker who stands 5’11” tall and since Joe Kinnear is rumored to be after a Belgian striker, we wonder if this lad could be the Newcastle target.
Jelle Vossen – Genk’s 24 year-old striker
Jelle was born in Bilzen, Belgium, and he first joined Genk way back in 2000, when he was just 11 years old.
He became a starter at Genk in 2008 but was loaned out to Cercle Brugge for the 2009-2010 season, and he scored 8 goals in 21 appearances there, and in fact over the last three seasons at Genk he has scored 65 goals in 110 appearances – not bad at all.
In his career at Genk he has 148 total appearances and 78 goals in seven seasons he’s spent there.
Last season he scored 14 goals in only 21 appearances for his club side,and he has played for all the Belgian Youth sides from U15 through U21 (8 appearances) and he’s played 11 times for the full Belgium side with two goals.
Maybe out Belgian readers can comment on how good this lad would be for Newcastle, if indeed Joe is interested in signing him.
