After Yohan Cabaye was only too quick to leave Newcastle last month when PSG came a calling and Loic Remy and maybe even Matthieu Debuchy will leave the club this summer, its nioce when one of out players says some really nice things about our club.
Luuk de Jong – nice things to say about Newcastle
And today in the Chronicle that’s exactly what Luuk de Jong has done.
You’ve got to give it to Newcastle that they didn’t waver at all, after Luuk had such a terrible time of things in Germany and they signed up their former striker target on a loan deal last month.
And it seems Luuk is really pleased about being at Newcastle:
“It’s a club that really wants me. It’s a great club in England and the Premier League is a massive competition.” “I’m already enjoying my time here. I have a good feeling about it. Newcastle have been after me for a few years now, from when I was at FC Twente, and that gives me a good feeling.
“I’m really happy to get this opportunity to play.” “I’m really motivated. ” “The first half of the season hasn’t been nice for me because I didn’t play much.” “I just want to show my talent, score goals and be successful again. That’s why I’m at Newcastle.”
“My goalscoring record in Holland was very good and hopefully I can show that here.” ” My first target is to play games for my club which is Newcastle now.” “I want to be on the pitch, score goals and be an important part of the team.”
Luuk needs to get some goals if he is going to get a permanent deal at the club in the summer, and maybe having Loic Remy back on Sunday will help, because we have to think that Alan Pardew will play in a 4-4-2 formation, especially with Cheick Tiote being back from injury.
Luuk seems a really nice guy (no – it’s not just because he’s said nice things about Newcastle – honest), and how about signing his 25 year-old brother Siem from Ajax in the summer.
Siem de Jong - currently at Ajax
Siem will have one year left on his contract in Holland, and could be brought in for a decent fee, as far as Newcastle are concerned, and the club could make it a family affair.
