It seems that a compromise was reached between the club and Freddie as he has extended his current deal by one year. We hope that this will give them the time necessary to bridge the gap in their current negotiations.
Woodman was frozen out of a loan move last season as he would not sign a new contract offered by the club. He remained at Newcastle and only made 3 appearances in the FA Cup.
He will now get a season long loan move to Swansea who will look to improve upon their 10th place finish last season in the Championship.
Freddie Woodman– will get some games this season
The England U21 international will battle it out with two thirty-year-old keepers at Swansea for first-team football. Though Swansea does not really have a number one between the sticks as Swedish keeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt and Dutch keeper Erwin Mulder split time last season almost evenly. Nordfeldt made 25 appearances while Mulder made 27.
This is a fantastic opportunity for young Freddie to secure a first-team place at Swansea. If he can perform really well he may be able to finally get the long-term deal at Newcastle he is looking for.
