Siem de Jong – on loan for the season to PSV

Here ‘s what Newcastle have just put on their web-site:

Newcastle United can confirm that Siem de Jong has joined PSV Eindhoven on a season-long loan.

The 27-year-old Dutchman joined the Magpies from Ajax in the summer of 2014 but has endured an injury-plagued two years on Tyneside so far.

He has been restricted to 26 appearances – only seven of them starts – during that time, and has scored twice in all competitions. He suffered a hamstring injury in pre-season but is nearing a return to full fitness.

De Jong will link up with his brother Luuk, who had a loan spell at St. James’ Park in 2013/14, at the Philips Stadion.

Rafa has said recently that he talked to Siem and they agreed the main thing for Siem is to play in the coming season, so a loan deal seemed to be the best way to get him playing again back in Holland.

It will be interesting to see if he returns to Newcastle next summer for pre-season, but Siem said last Friday that Rafa said he could still have a future at Newcastle:

“Coach Rafael Benitez has said he sees a future for me at the club, but feels that I need matches at a level to judge me.”

“And he can’t guarantee me games in the Championship he said.”.

Siem is the 10th senior player to leave the club this summer.

Here’s all the ins and outs at Newcastle this summer – so far.

    This will be called off when he changes into his boots and ends up dislocating a sock.

  • 2 Spoof // Aug 22, 2016 at 3:28 PM

    In fairness I did say that he needs to cut out the stupid and the unnecessary, but what I am saying is that due to how he plays the game he will get cards, last season his two reds were avoidable as they were stupid, apart from that his record wasn’t that bad, however I honestly feel that his record without the stupidity wasn’t to bad was due to him being rather fortunate, he could and should have had more cards but due to lenient refs I think he got away with some, he will pick up cards due to how he plays, just as Costa will and Roy Keane did, it’s in there make up and it goes with the territory.

  • 3 jeraziah // Aug 22, 2016 at 3:28 PM

    Glad to see him move on. Just too injury prone. Hope he can catch a break at PSV and get some games. Wonder who will get the #10 Jersey? New signing?! 🙂

  • 4 Spoof // Aug 22, 2016 at 3:32 PM

    Such a shame for him, all that ability and so much to offer yet we never got the chance to see him at his best, a real crying shame.

  • 5 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Aug 22, 2016 at 3:34 PM

    Spoof

    It as a shame. He does have great ability. It’s just the poor blokes body has the toughness of half-set jelly

  • 6 Tsunki // Aug 22, 2016 at 3:38 PM

    What do psv want him for? Spare parts?

  • 7 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Aug 22, 2016 at 3:43 PM

    Tsunki

    Perhaps they need to test thier new state of the art physio equipment?

  • 8 Mr Funk // Aug 22, 2016 at 3:44 PM

    I see wolves have signed borthwick-jackson and ola John on season long loans.
    Have we missed a couple of good signings?

  • 9 TacoFlavoredKisses ForMyBen-arfa // Aug 22, 2016 at 3:55 PM

    arent we getting a little light on players? i dont see the point in this deal. Granted he hasnt played, but who do we have to play the 10 now? Perez is not great there. or are we going 442 ? if so, im ok with ritchie, shelvy hayden, but who is the 4th?
    gayle and mitro up top.

  • 10 giimps // Aug 22, 2016 at 4:03 PM

    I’m disappointed about this, I was hoping it would be until January but hey ho, at least he will hopefully be playing well, get confidence in his body back (up u till his last year before he joined us he was hardly ever injured long term)
    I think Gouffy will be the lw , mitrovic, gayle flanked by gouffy and Ritchie with either Diame and Hayden or Shelvey and Hayden in more of a 4-1-3-2.
    Game on

  • 11 Belfast // Aug 22, 2016 at 4:07 PM

    Sweepstake – Back for christmas : Long term injury.

  • 12 Tsunki // Aug 22, 2016 at 4:09 PM

    Perhaps they need to use SDJ in their new game-changing tech research

    “Mercato : Henri Saivet attendu à Saint-Etienne mardi”

    Is it au revoir or adieu, Henri?

  • 14 firebug666 // Aug 22, 2016 at 4:23 PM

    According to French media, we will be announcing another departure tomorrow which will surely be part of clearing the decks for new incomings at Newcastle.

    French Football stating that hardly used Henri Saivet is to join St Etienne tomorrow. The move is expected to be another loan deal but this one will have the option of a permanent deal.

    Saivet is a strange one in that he has hardly featured at all for us since he moved here in January and Rafa Benitez hasn’t played him at all.

    The Frenchman has featured in only four games for us playing a total of two and a half hours of football. He has started two games.

    The first was away to Watford where he got subbed on the hour mark and his only other start where he lasted 55 minutes in the away defeat at Everton. Since that day the closest he got was warming the bench before he ended up in the reserves.

    We allegedly paid £5m for Saivet but will do well to get half that back.

    Rafa evidently not impressed!

  • 16 firebug666 // Aug 22, 2016 at 4:30 PM

    Ron

    And we have not seen enough of him to make a judgement, but have ti guess he is not good enough, another poor purchase.

    Apparently Sissoko was training with the team today, erm meeting with the assistant coach, but will not feature in the EFL game.

  • 17 NUFCPaul // Aug 22, 2016 at 4:32 PM

    Tsunki – what do PSV want for him? A pat on the back I think.

  • 18 Ron Knee // Aug 22, 2016 at 4:32 PM

    firebug

    The Bordeaux supporters were glad to see the back of him, apparently.

    Siem De Jong claims he is fit and ready to star for PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League

    Yes but by who’s standards Siem?

    Ron

    I kinda know how they felt, he has done zero for us, collected his wage, kept his head down, and avoided the football at all costs.

  • 21 Tsunki // Aug 22, 2016 at 4:37 PM

    I definitely think Ed has barred me from using hyperlinks 🙂 that was a link from SDJ to the film “Source Code”. Kinda loses the moment now.

  • 22 Essex Geordie Bill // Aug 22, 2016 at 4:40 PM

    I no it’s not football, but does anyone know what nationality the judges were for the Joe Joyce fight., we didn’t have a Euro-vision sort of decision perchance?.

  • 23 Essex Geordie Bill // Aug 22, 2016 at 4:51 PM

    Couldn’t resist a reply to this comment from an older thread.

    lochinvar // Aug 22, 2016 at 9:57 AM

    Ed it’s Cheltenham , not Chesterfield- keep up !
    Maybe we can play Moussa for his swan song.

    “Swan Lake more like it” 🙂

  • 24 Jib // Aug 22, 2016 at 4:56 PM

    The two who awarded the fight to Tony Yoka were Clemente Carrillo, of Ecuador, and Emre Aydin, of Turkey

  • 25 goommy // Aug 22, 2016 at 5:03 PM

    Everytime I saw this guy on the field. I always feel like “Oh, he seem to offer us something good”. And then yeah..out for 3 months again and again..

  • 26 hibbitt // Aug 22, 2016 at 5:22 PM

    its all very well all these players leaving and admittedly some haven’t contributed a great deal but we are starting to look thin on the ground for a very long season and any cup run

  • 27 Charlie in the Gallowgate // Aug 22, 2016 at 5:36 PM

    RAFA been speaking To Radio Newcastle Total Sport telling them that he/Newcastle United are closer to signing players – didn’t say how many

  • 28 ShirebrookToon // Aug 22, 2016 at 5:36 PM

    Hopefully there will be some players coming in this week. All well and good having a clear out but we don’t want to leave ourselves short

  • 29 Jib // Aug 22, 2016 at 5:51 PM

    You have the option to play from start
