Newcastle United ace Jetro Willems has posted a rather cryptic tweet on his official Twitter page as his immediate future at the Tyneside club seems uncertain.
As per his tweet, the 26-year old says that he is ‘going to see what the future holds’, as he has only been on loan in the North East from Eintracht Frankfurt and technically this has now expired, but it seems unclear as of yet as to whether his immediate future still lies at St. James’ park or back in Germany with his parent club.
I want to thank everyone at @NUFC You made me feel at home and supported me throughout the whole season.I really appreciate that and I wish you all luck,succes and health. I’m now going to see what the future holds, but I want you to know that you have a special place in my heart pic.twitter.com/t6J8sn5T6B

Indeed, with the outbreak of the global pandemic delaying the restart of the 2019/20 season, contracts and loan deals for some players have been set to expire with the campaign still going on, and Willems falls in this category.
Should Newcastle sign Willems permanently?
The left-back has perhaps been unlucky that he picked up a serious cruciate ligament rupture in the middle of January earlier on in the year, that has seen him miss seven games, according to Transfermarkt.
There has not been an official time stamp on when exactly he could return, meaning that the Magpies have almost been put in limbo with regards to possibly extending his loan deal even though he is still injured.
The Dutch international was arguably playing well before this happened as Steve Bruce played him in 20 matches in all competitions, whereby he scored two goals and made three assists (via Transfermarkt).
Only time will tell as to when Willems will fully recover from his injury set back, but the next time he steps forward onto the pitch may not be in the famous black-and-white-striped jersey.
Geordies, do you think Willems will play again for the Toon? Comment below!
