Newcastle United goalkeeper Freddie Woodman has told The Chronicle that he is open to leaving the club in the summer transfer window.
The 19-year-old England Under-19 international has suggested that he is ready to join another club on loan.
The talented youngster has also admitted that he found the past season quite tough. Woodman struggled for playing time, and Newcastle also got relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2015-16 campaign and will play in the Championship next season.
“It’s a difficult time for the club and a difficult time for myself,” Woodman told The Chronicle. “I haven’t got as much gametime as I’d have liked this season, and it’s something I’ll have to look at and see if I can get out on loan.”
Woodman is a talented and promising young goalkeeper, and it would make sense for him to leave St. James’ Park on a loan deal, probably for the first half of the 2016-17 campaign.
It would be hard for the Englishman to compete with Tim Krul, Rob Elliot and Karl Darlow for a spot in the first team.
Woodman is still very young and is developing, and playing on loan for a Championship or a League One club next season would be good for him.
