Newcastle United: Magpies eye Stefan de Vrij

Newcastle United: Magpies eye Stefan de Vrij -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United are reportedly now eyeing up a bargain move in the summer for Stefan de Vrij.

The Lowdown: Centre-back changes

With Premier League safety all but secure, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s (KSA) Public Investment Fund (PIF) will surely now be looking forward to the summer in order to take the team to the next level.

One area that they look certain to strengthen in is the centre of defence, with the likes of Goncalo Inacio being mooted as a potential signing, and Jamaal Lascelles potentially heading out of the exit door.

The Magpies signed Dan Burn in January and the former Brighton star has been a huge hit, making a ‘ridiculous impact‘, but it seems they are not finished yet.

The Latest: de Vrij eyed

As per Football Insider, the St. James’ Park faithful are just one of a number of clubs now targeting a move for de Vrij this summer, with both Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa also in the race for his signature.

Should Newcastle sign De Vrij?

Yes

No

He has been told by Inter Milan that he can leave for just £15m, £25m less than his previous £40m value, as the Serie A giants find themselves strapped for cash.

A recruitment source has revealed that the Netherlands international has not opened talks with Inter over a new contract, and his future is now up in the air.

The Verdict: Bargain

Considering his previous value, signing up de Vrij for a mere £15m would certainly be a bargain.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this transfer quiz, test your friends and family! First up, who was Craig Bellamy sold to?

Described as a ‘monster‘ by former Lazio defender Mauricio, the six-foot-two colossus simply loves to defend, with former player and fellow Dutchman Kees Kwakman saying that he ‘can do anything‘, despite perhaps not being the biggest or the fastest for a central defender.

Nonetheless, at 30 years of age, de Vrij has so much experience of playing at the highest level, and so would bring an elite mentality into a dressing room hoping to pick up trophies throughout their long-term project.
