Jetro Willems is available for just £10 million with Newcastle United handed the chance to sign the loanee on a permanent basis without breaking the bank, as reported by the Northern Echo.

The Dutch international had been linked with a move to St James’ Park for years and finally pulled on the famous black and white stripes this summer after joining Steve Bruce’s side on a season-long deal from Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt.

 

Willems was at fault for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s winning goal on his Magpies debut but he has recovered in style to establish himself as a key player at St James’ Park.

That stunning effort against Liverpool, arrowed into the top corner with his weaker right foot, remains one of the few moments of attacking quality produced by any Newcastle player in a difficult start to Bruce’s reign.

The former PSV Eindhoven and Sparta Rotterdam flyer has 22 caps for the Dutch national team, plus two Eredivisie titles and a DFB Pokal winner’s medal.
