Newcastle in talks to keep Patrick van Aanholt on Tyneside

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

Aanholt - Would be nice to keep this lad at Newcastle United for another while

In what was a busy January transfer window for Newcastle United, we saw Newcastle sign Patrick van Aanholt from Chelsea on-loan for the injured Jose Enrique. It was a quick move by Hughton to replace Jose and I think it’s fair say that Patrick has done very well at Newcastle United in his time here. His debut against Leicester saw him nearly score too, a left footed drive palmed away by City’s #1. We’re hoping that Chelsea will indeed allow Newcastle to extend the loan of van Aanholt because we need cover in the wing-back area. What’s more, is that van Aanholt is a similar player to Enrique, loves to get forward and work with his wingers.

Hughton speaking today, said :

‘The agreement we had with Chelsea is that it was for a month, so at this particular moment, his loan period finishes after the Watford game.

‘I am in dialogue with Chelsea - whether that changes slightly for a little bit longer, that’s something we will ascertain, but at this moment, the agreement we had was very much until after this game.

Chelsea are without Ashley Cole due to injury but whether they’ll want to recall Patrick is another matter. I’m not sure if he’d get anywhere near the LB position but his performances with Newcastle United in his stint here will surely strengthen support for the lad.

Hughton too knows that Patrick has talent :

‘We have been delighted with him and we would like to think he will go back to Chelsea having learnt and become a better player than when he came here.’

That said, the Watford game is the most important aspect of the weekend from the Toon. Another win, and a first away win in four games would be a brilliant way to continue our good form, and we’ll soon have a fully fit squad too 🙂

Comments welcome 🙂

Doubt Chelsea would let him come to us and sit on our bench. You would have to look a long way to find a player that could replace Jose this season and how good aanholt is, its Jose every time. Shame hes not a right back as Simpson gets raped everytime someone runs at him.

I'm with Roy on this one, that was uncalled for Chris Bell. Perhaps you should spend some of your own spare time writing things for others to read? Then we could all pick that apart and see how much you like it?

:lol: Not bad for a 14 year old Doocey, well worth an O'level lol err whatever they're called now! Would be good to keep this player but Enrique will be difficult to budge from LB once he's fit. Maybe van aanholt could play a more attacking role and fight Jonas for a place or push Jonas into centre mf.
