Newcastle After Germany Internantional

The Evening Chronicle are reporting that Newcastle United will be scouting the Wolfsburg right back Sebastian Jung over the weekend.

Wolfsburg are away to VFB Stuttgart in a Saturday 2.30 Pm GMT kick off in the German Bundesliga.

Jung is widely recognized as the second best German right back in the league behind Bayern Munich’s Philipp Lahm. The right back only came to the attention of the club while they were looking at his team mate Robin Knoche.

The 24 year old moved to the Wolves only this summer from Eintracht Frankfurt after the club triggered his release clause of €2.5 million. Since moving to the Volkswagen Arena the defender has made 13 appearances for the club and has provided one assist.

Jung is an excellent passer of the ball and has the ability to hold on to ball in tight areas. In 2012 he became the first Frankfurt player to be called up by Germany in 13 years. He eventually made his debut in a goalless draw against Poland earlier this year.

He is currently on €4 million a year and that could be a stumbling block for a potential move to the north-east.

The Chronicle are also reporting that the Magpies are also going to scout Andre-Pierre Gignac of Marseille.

  1. Why do we need him when we have Janmaat? A centre back would be more important id say.
