A number of Newcastle United fans have urged their club to sort out a permanent deal for Netherlands international Jetro Willems.
The 25-year-old has impressed for the Magpies this season – contributing one goal and two assists in nine Premier League appearances.
The left-back is only on loan at St James’ Park, however, and his contract with parent club Eintracht Frankfurt will run until the summer of 2021.
Many of the Newcastle supporters are keen for their side to secure a permanent deal for the defender, though, and it will be interesting to see what develops.
The Dutchman has an average pass success rate of just over 76% from his nine league outings this season, according to WhoScored.
And many of the Newcastle fans have been impressed with his form – a selection of the Twitter reaction is available to view below:
Love watching Willems play. Always so calm and composed, rarely looses the ball. When he sends the ball away, he seems to try and make sure that it arrives where he intended. Does nice turns when needed to get out of pressure. Sort the deal out in Jan please. No brainer. #NUFC

He’s come a long way since the Arsenal mistake. Once considered a left back with huge potential, but injuries stalled his progress. Seems to be on the upwards curve now, definitely a no brainer.

He’s a beast on the ball, he just barges through people and has such a strong shot that will always trouble the keeper. Really hope we sign him, will be interesting to see what happens with Ritchie once he is fit again.

He has magical feet that dribble in the box against man utd he mugged off man utds whole defense then laid it off to Matty, Also that skill just before he scored that screamer against Liverpool. The lad has talent and I hope we make the deal permanent in January.
