Report: Newcastle United lose out on Ryan Hiwat to Oldham Athletic

St James Park

Newcastle United were reportedly interested in PSV youngster Ryan Hiwat.

Newcastle United have lost out on the race to sign Ryan Hiwat from PSV, according to The Sun.

The British tabloid claims that the 19-year-old winger is joining Oldham Athletic on a week’s trial, despite interest from Newcastle and Championship outfit Birmingham City.

It has also been reported by The Sun that Hiwat will feature for Oldham against Halifax on Tuesday night.

Will Newcastle United regret missing out on Ryan Hiwat?

The fact that Newcastle were (reportedly) interested in Hiwat suggests that the Premier League outfit rate the teenager.

However, the Magpies fans need not worry about missing out, as the youngster would probably have arrived on trial anyway.

The fact that Oldham are taking Hiwat on trial suggests that the League One outfit themselves are not fully sure if he is worth giving a contract rightaway.

Moreover, one also need to ask why Dutch giants PSV are willing to let Hiwat leave.
