Newcastle fans react as Jetro Willems claims Toon want to sign him

Jetro Willems has told Dutch outlet VTBL that both Newcastle United and AS Roma are both interested in luring him away from German side Eintracht Frankfurt – and Newcastle fans have reacted on Twitter.

The 25-year-old has long been linked with a move to Newcastle, with the Chronicle claiming more than three years ago that chief scout Graham Carr had watched the 22-time Netherlands international during his time at PSV.

Now, Newcastle could be about to reignite that interest in the left-sided defender, who has somewhat failed to live up to the expectations and the hype that surrounded him in the early stages of his career.

Willems has a contract at Frankfurt until the summer of 2021, but he spoke openly about his future and when asked about any potential interest from Newcastle, he replied: “There is interest from those clubs.”

Newcastle need a left-back. Paul Dummett has been a loyal servant on the left side of the defence, but he is deemed one of the weaker players in the starting eleven. Antonio Barreca and Kenedy both failed this season on loan.

Newcastle fans reacted to Willems’ comments on Twitter, with many of the belief that he would be a good signing for Rafa Benitez’s side while others cannot believe that they have been linked with the player again.
