Newcastle: Fans beg for Jetro Willems to be signed permanently after his tweet - Newcastle United

Plenty of Newcastle fans have implored the club to secure a permanent deal for “legend” Jetro Willems after the on-loan defender indicated that he wanted to stay with the Magpies.

When asked the question “What do you want?” on Twitter, the Dutchman replied (via @JetroWillems_15): “To sign and play for NUFC”, a response which prompted numerous Geordies to make the same request. In a previous tweet, the 26-year-old said: “I think its more a question for the club if they want me back”.

Willems is at St James’ Park on a season-long loan from Eintracht Frankfurt and he is currently due to return to Germany over the summer unless the Magpies take up their option to buy him permanently. The right-back had been a regular in Steve Bruce’s first XI, with two goals and two assists in 19 Premier League appearances, prior to suffering a season-ending cruciate ligament injury against Chelsea in January. He had averaged an impressive 1.9 successful tackles per game in his time at Newcastle, as well as recording a match average of 1.1 completed dribbles (as per WhoScored).
