Newcastle United are believed to be interested in a deal to sign Eintracht Frankfurt defender Jetro Willems according to The Chronicle Live’s Notebook, which was written by Mark Douglas.
Willems has reportedly turned down a new contract with the German side, which means that he could be available at a cut-price fee.
He’s a player that the St James’ Park faithful will know well, with Willems making 20 appearances for the club whilst on loan from Eintracht Frankfurt in the 2019/20 season.
Newcastle are currently sat 15th in the Premier League table, and will be hoping they can put together a positive run of results at the earliest of opportunities, after holding league-leaders Liverpool to a goalless draw in their most recent match.
It could be an interesting few weeks ahead for Steve Bruce’s side, as they look to make the necessary additions to their team.
Plenty of Newcastle United supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on the club’s rumoured interest in signing Willems for a second time.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below.
“He’s coming home @JetroWillems_15.”
“Make it happen.”
“Bring him home @JetroWillems_15.”
“He’s coming home, He’s coming home, JETRO’S COMING HOME!”
“Make it happen. When we play with wings backs Ritchie just doesn’t cut it, plenty heart but just is past his best. Willemstad LWB is a threat.”
“I don’t care if we can get him free In the summer pay the money and get him ASAP.”
“We’ve got to sign him surely? He’s loads better than Lewis, the fans love him, and he loves the toon. What more needs to be said?”
“Injury prone player. What the hell”
