Newcastle were credited with an interest in Dutch U21 International goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet in the summer, and were even said to bid £2M for the 22 year-old keeper, who is now the number one at PSV.
Warner Hahn of FC Dordecht – looks older than 21
He must worry a lot
And now Newcastle are being linked with another young Dutch goalkeeper, 21-year-old 6’6″ tall Warner Hahn, who plays for Dutch second division side FC Dordrecht.
The Rotterdam born goalkeeper has played 7 times for the Dutch U21 side, and 26 times for Dutch Youth sides at different ages, and he has drawn attention from a number of clubs, because of his excellent form this season.
Newcastle have been linked with wanting a third goalkeeper brought in for over a year now, so we don’t know if that’s because the club may want to cash in on the excellent Tim Krul, or that Alan Pardew is one of those managers who likes three goalkeepers at the club who can play first team football.
The news is that Hahn is expected to move to Tyneside in January in a £2M deal, but we’d be surprised if that happens, and then we’d have to understand what does that mean for the future of Tim Krul at Newcastle?
Is the club perhaps getting ready to sell Tim next summer to the highest bidder?
Assuming this news is true on Hahn, what do you think it means?
