This Talented Newcastle Player Now In Big Demand


Newcastle goalkeeper Freddie Woodman played well for England in the Toulouse tournament that the U21 team won on Saturday by beating Mexico 2-1 in the final.

That was the third year in a row that England have won the tournament.

Rafa Benitez will very likely loan Woodman out for the season, and the Chronicle is reporting today that at least six clubs want to take the 21-year-old on loan.

Freddie looked an accomplished goalkeeper in Toulouse and was voted the best goalkeeper in the tournament.

Freddie Woodman – in Newcastle’s colors

And that follows on from last summer when Woodman starred for the England U20 side who beat Venezuela 1-0 in the final in South Korea to win the World U20 championship.

Chronicle Live is reporting Woodman already has two Scottish Premiership sides, a Championship club, and three teams in League One who are ready to offer him a season-long loan for the upcoming season.

It’s essential that Freddie plays every week, but he is good enough now to be playing Championship football.

So the highest level would be the best for him for next season – as long as he plays every week.

What do you think?

    I would let him go to the Championship. Better standard of football than the SPL.

    Rafa likes authoritative goalies to boss the back 4

    Karl Darlow seems like he cannot do it and Freddie is too young

    Lets just hope this time around that Newcastle put in a clause in the loan deal that will terminate the deal should Woodman not be playing regularly!

    Same goes for Armstrong!

    One for the future, don’t let him go ! Loan only without the option to buy.

    Jib from previous @3 – I’m not sure about Rondon – I don’t think he is the answer especially at £16m.
    Also I’m still waiting for the announcement of Adama Traoré that, the other day, you said was nailed on 😀

    There’s a small spark of hope in my heart that says one week, some time soon, we’re going to have multiple good news stories to chew over on here. Maybe Rafa signing for 5 years, maybe multiple new signings for the first team who most agree can add value and competition and maybe, just maybe, news of a take over.

    However, I find this spark continually battling a dread that the NUFC ownership will continue to deflate me, the club and the city, that Rafa is fighting a hopeless battle for both his own contract and potential signings and that the chubby one has no intention at all of releasing us from our 11-year purgatory.

    I’m urging the club I love and the owner I don’t to do something, anything, to bring a smile to my face and the collective faces of the club’s fans in Newcastle and further away. Come on Mike, you know it makes sense.

    Salaman Rondon? Sslaman Rushdie’s a better bet!

    Surely the Rondon story hasn’t got legs, what does he bring to the table that Joselu and Mitro don’t? Sure he works hard, but those two do too. He doesn’t score goals, which is what we need. I’d rather Mitro and/or Arma was given a go and we use that £16m on Kennedy.
