Newcastle And On Loan Star Need To Compromise On His Promising Future



Freddie Woodman has had a breakout season on loan at Swansea in the Championship. The 23-year-old signed an extension to 2021 before joining Swans in early August. He’s since started all 37 league games for Swansea, who currently sit in 11th place.

Woodman has had some memorable penalty saves along with 11 clean sheets during his spell in Wales. He’s shown enough that Newcastle should want to sit down with him to work out an extension.

However, Freddie will want some assurances of what his future will look like should he pen a longterm deal to remain at the club he joined almost 7 years ago. With Martin Dubravka in the form of his life, there will be little first-team football for Freddie in the immediate future at Newcastle.


The young keeper spoke to the BBC Sport Wales recently and made it crystal clear that he wants to stay at the Liberty Stadium next season.

This is what he revealed when asked about next season:

“I think the club know and the fans know that I absolutely love it here.

“I would love to carry on next season. When you are enjoying your footy and enjoying where you live, it makes life so much easier.

“But in football it’s not really up to the player’s choice, it’s about the clubs.”

Woodman’s future, like some other Magpies, will not be sorted until a decision on the takeover is made. Freddie seems to have the upper hand in negotiations with just one year remaining on his current deal.

Since he wants to return to Swansea next season, Newcastle could use that to their advantage in getting Freddie to sign a long term deal. They could promise him another loan move next year in the hopes he will commit his future to Newcastle.

What we don’t want is another situation where Freddie is prevented from getting first-team football due to tense contract negotiations, which happened last season.

Hopefully, once this takeover is sorted, Woodman can sit down with the new owners and work out a contract extension. He’ll not be needed at Newcastle for the immediate future, so returning to Swansea is a win-win proposition.

We just don’t want to see the promising young keeper walk out the door for nothing next summer or leave for a pittance after this season is completed.

    Seems like the Chronicle are the ones who said that the report will be released “this week” earlier today. Came from a WTO spokesperson; probably a person who hasn’t the foggiest and was just replying to emails.

    Greggs tried to branch out into Europe and had a few shops in belgium.it didn’t work out.
    I thought benidorm or Costa del sol would have been a better option.

    thats what I was talking about on last thread, if they bring this into it then you can bet saudi will even have a go at WTO in the courts as well as the PL if this is turned down on that so called evidence and why was this evidence with held in 2 french courts because they would have known about that even then

    Saudis got a draft of this report at the same time as the premier league

    It’s old news

    They will have been working through it to make it watertight in regards to anyone objecting

    Government wavy this deal to go through for all sorts of reasons

    Complex – yes

    Failure – no

    aye, as if he knows everything like tom said click bait hes obviously feeling the strain of being neglected, he needs some attention like all the other so called top sports reporters up and down the country 🙂 I had a go at george caulkin this morning saying hes sorry the great north run is cancelled I said why did they cancel it if its good enough for BLM and antifa protesting and other parties protesting then it should go ahead, he said thats a strange response and I said yeah thats how I feel though george 🙂 he said nowt else after that

    Somebody earlier accused Luke Edwards of having jumped on the negativity bandwagon. I’d argue he’s the driver.

    aye ive had uk ccams before the way I see it really is this, if the PL and sky tv are that greedy why should I be ripped off by there high prices, I will continue using the boxes until they bring there prices down but that never happen, so the way I see it saudi have every right to feel there being singled out and should sue on them grounds with WTO 🙂 that make there day
