Newcastle’s on-loan striker Luuk De Jong wants to stay at Newcastle at the end of his loan spell, but of course he will have to be like the postman (mailman) before the end of this season – and deliver – goals that is.
Luuk de Jong – wants to stay at Newcastle
Luuk has looked good in his two appearances for Newcastle so far, and once Loic Remy is fit again – we’d love to see a Luuk de Jong – Loic Remy front two in a 4-4-2 formation at Newcastle.
That could be against Aston Villa at St. James’ Park in two weeks time – following the home game on Wednesday against Tottenham – who beat Everton 1-0 today.
Luuk showed good movement on Saturday at Stamford Bridge and he had this to say in the Mirror:
“I would like to be important for this team, in terms of goals and assists, and work hard.”
I’m on loan with an option to stay and I would like to go on with this option if it is possible.” “Of course I would like to try to impress enough to stay.”
“It’s a really big and nice club. I am really happy that I have come here, even if it’s been a tough start.” “After the Sunderland defeat it wasn’t a nice place, the disappointment was strong.”
“That was a game we couldn’t lose and we did, of course. It was never going to be nice but I have a really good feeling about the place. I think we can go on now and do better.”
Newcastle were without Loic Remy, Yoan Gouffran, Fabricio Coloccini, Papiss Cisse and Cheick Tiote on Saturday, and now Mathieu Debuchy will miss out on Wednesday night, although Yoan Gouffran is expected to be back for that game.
Newcastle have lost five of their last seven games and failed to score in five of them – so we need Luuk de Jong to find the net as quickly as possible, and hopefully everybody will be fit for the game at Aston Villa two weeks today.
We need to see Newcastle start a winning run before the end of the season, and we could still finish in a decent position in the league table.
