VIDEO: Nicolai Jorgensen goals & assists – the Feyenoord striker in talks over £20m move to NUFC

So, it emerged late last night that Feyenoord’s Nicolai Jorgensen was the unnamed striker in talks with Newcastle over a potential club record move to St James’ Park. It remains to be seen if we’ll pay the alleged £20m asking price, but talks are said to be very much ongoing.

It’s not hard for someone to look good on Youtube, but there’s some really clever pieces of play here along with several poachers goals. He looks like a bit of an all-rounder at first glance.
