According to the Chronicle, Newcastle United stopper Freddie Woodman is becoming increasingly frustrated at St. James’ Park.

Woodman is regarded as one of the best prospects at Newcastle, but he has still barely featured for Rafael Benitez’s side.

The Spanish boss is said to be a big fan of Woodman, who he considers a potential Newcastle United number one of the future.

 

However, keeping Woodman on Tyneside is becoming increasingly difficult.

With Martin Dubravka so solid in goal for Newcastle, breaking into their team is proving difficult for Woodman.

The 22-year-old has been denied moves away from Newcastle for the past two transfer windows, meaning he has been starved of first-team football.

Woodman is now said to be desperate for regular games, and the Magpies are thought to be willing to loan him out this summer.

And, with the goalkeeper having just 12 months remaining on his current contract, Newcastle are facing a battle to keep hold of him.
