Daryl Janmaat is keen on a move to Newcastle United, and that’s according to a report in the Shields Gazette this morning, with the news that Newcastle have either had a €6M bid (£4.8M) turned down by Feyenoord (reports in Holland) or that we are about to make the bid (Journal report this morning).
Take you pick.
Daryl Janmaat – wants a move to Newcastle
Newcastle have targeted Holland this summer for a number of players, and we have already signed Siem de Jong from Ajax and we now have three Holland Internationals on board – including Tim Krul and Vurnon Anita – so Daryl Janmaat would have some of his countrymen alongside him if he signed on at Newcastle.
The Feyenoord defender is still in Brazil preparing for the game tomorrow for the 3rd place finish in the World Cup – what’s the point of having that game?
Tim Krul will have talked to his compatriot about life at Newcastle United, and we assume that’s a positive message to Daryl, although there were reports that Tim may want to leave the club this summer.
But if we can get Daryl in and maybe even take Luuk de Jong on a season long loan deal, depending how efforts to sign other strikers go before September rolls around, Tim could well want to stay at Newcastle.
But it does seem that push is coming to shove at Newcastle on the transfer front – so to speak – and we are said to be close to deals for both Remy Cabella and Daryl Janmaat.
And just think how the mood on Tyneside would be lifted if we can get both these top players through the door in the next few days.
And then we need to get some strikers through the door – Demba Ba and Loic Remy would be good.
