Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to express their reaction to reports linking their club with a move for Jetro Willems this month.
According to reports from the Shields Gazette, the Magpies have explored the possibility of signing the 26-year-old Dutch defender as Steve Bruce is looking to bolster his defence.
Newcastle signed Jamal Lewis in the summer, while Bruce has Paul Dummett as another option. However, Lewis has struggled to make a strong impact, while Dummett has injury concerns having missed most of last year with hamstring problems.
Bruce is looking to bring in a few players this month on loan, and Willems could be an option for the Magpies. Many Newcastle fans have suggested that he should be signed this month and that it’s a no-brainer.
I’m amazed this hasn’t been tied up already! #nufc
The boost from him signing would probably be better than the actual advance he’d bring on the pitch, good player but not really what we need right now, definitely want him in but by God we desperately need at least one central player or we’re doomed
