Dutch Left-Back Spotted at St. James’ Park Yesterday


He looks like a thumb

PSV Eindhoven’s Jetro Willems was spotted in the crowds of St James’s Park yesterday – to support close friend Georginio Wijnaldum on his debut.

The Dutch international left-back, who is regarded as one of the most exciting defensive prospects in Europe, jetted into Newcastle airport before making his way to the stadium to see Newcastle draw 2-2 with Southampton.

The lad would have inevitably been delighted to have seen his friend score the the third goal of the game, Newcastle’s second, in what was his first competitive appearance for the club.

Willems posted a photograph of himself on board a flight to Newcastle on Instagram the day before the match.

The 21-year-old Dutchman, cryptically, said: “Fly to the future.”

As was seen on Sunday, Newcastle are still looking defensively frail. Massadio Haidara was looking especially ropey in the left-back position and it could well be that the player was on Tyneside for another reason.

We have recently been linked with the likes of Jose Enrique and Kemar Lawrence, and if Newcastle are looking to build in that area, Willems would be an excellent addition. 

Here he is scoring an offensively cool penalty:

I guess we’ll have to wait and see!
