New Fenerbahce manager Dick Advocaat wants to take Newcastle United’s Siem De Jong on loan for this season and that’s news in Turkey’s Sporx.
But Fenerbahce may have to move quickly since the earlier news today was that Siem will be having his medical at PSV in the next couple of days, prior to a loan move back to Holland.
The 64-year old has talked to club President Aziz Yildirim and he wants to sign Siem de Jong, whom fellow Dutchman Advocaat knows well.
Siem de Jong – likely to move this weekend
The former Ajax captain has had a disastrous two years at Newcastle, where he has picked up a lot of injuries and has failed to win a first team starting spot and is currently out with a hamstring injury.
Like PSV, Fenerbahce want him on a loan deal so they can assess his form and whether he has overcome the many injuries he has suffered over the last two years on Tyneside.
Siem’s former Dutch international teammates Robin van Persie and Gregory van der Wiel are both at the Turkish giants at the moment, so that could be an attraction for de Jong.
Of course he could also be back playing in the Eredivisie with PSV, a league he knows well from his many years playing at Ajax.
We expect a decision on Siem de Jong to be made before the end of the weekend and our guess would be he will move to the Dutch Champions PSV on loan and join his brother Luuk there.
