Premier League

Newcastle and Wigan tracking PSV winger

Warren Haughton of Talksport stopped by in the Football Transfer Tavern this weekend, revealing that both Newcastle and Wigan are interested in PSV Eindhoven winger Jeremain Lens, with £10million the suggested transfer fee.

Southampton failed in an attempt to sign the Netherlands international in the summer, with the striker understood to be keen on a move to the Premier League.

The 24-year-old has said how he is planning to leave the Phillips Stadion at the end of the season, although a January bid from either club could see him part company even sooner.

He told Elf Voetbal Magazine: “At the end of this season, I will be 25 and then a transfer must come. I would like to leave PSV with the title but if that does not happen it is still no reason to stay.

“At this point in my career I need to go for my career and personal development. I don’t have a real preference for a particular league but in terms of playing style England and Germany would suit me.”

With an expected price tag of £10million, does Newcastle seem the most likely destination?
