The Newcastle United goalkeeper is set to go on loan again.

Freddie Woodman has long been identified as a potential future first-choice goalkeeper for Newcastle United but the 20-year-old is set to be provided with another reminder regarding how difficult it will be for him to make the grade at the club in the long term.

With the experienced Martin Dubravka poised to join Newcastle from Sparta Prague, Woodman is set to be loaned out again, this time to Aberdeen, as reported by Chronicle Live.

Woodman made his senior debut for Newcastle in the FA Cup tie against Luton Town earlier this month but has spent the majority of the season so far playing for the club’s U23 side.

The 20-year-old has previously had loan spells with Hartlepool United, Crawley Town and Kilmarnock and is now set to head out on temporary transfer once again.

Woodman is still rather young for a goalkeeper but will be aware that succeeding at Newcastle will be a difficult task, especially given that the club can bring in a more experienced shot-stopper at any point.

Despite the potential that he possesses, Woodman still has much work to do in order to be a success at Newcastle and this latest loan is set to be hugely important for his development.
