The 29-year-old also featured for the Netherlands at Euro 2020, where he got on the scoresheet in their opening match against Ukraine, and Howey believes that Newcastle should have signed him last year.
“It could prove to be a big mistake, but I mean, it happens. I mean sometimes it goes the other way and sometimes you pay over the odds for a player because you think he’s going to be the next best thing and it turns out to be not what it said on the box type thing, so it goes both ways,” Howey told This is Futbol.
Steve Bruce guided the Magpies to 12th in the Premier League table last season, with Callum Wilson the club’s top goal scorer in the league after he managed to bag 12 goals.
