Jetro Willems reveals why NUFC return broke down after signing for new club – Photo

Jetro Willems finally has a new club – ending all hope of him sealing a return to Newcastle United this summer.

The Dutchman has joined newly promoted Bundesliga side Greuther Fürth, signing a two-year deal with the Germans after being released by Eintracht Frankfurt at the end of the 2020/21 season.

Interestingly, the 27-year-old then explained why a return to Newcastle “was not possible”, stating that he wasn’t able to get a work permit – based on the new Brexit rules and number of points needed:

“With Brexit you now need a work permit for the Premier League. That means you have to get a number of points.

“I did not achieve this and that is why a return to Newcastle United was not possible.”

As a result, it seems he’s given up hope arriving back on Tyneside and will instead spend the next few seasons back in the Bundesliga.

Here’s what he’s had to say after joining Greuther Furth:

“This is a club where after a year and a half without games I have the time to pick myself up again, where I can help the team and have fun with the game.

I’ve thought this through carefully and I’m glad everyone around me has supported me in making this decision”

All the best, Jetro!

  1. Well done Brexit voters. No more bargain buys from overseas to go with no food or presents at Xmas and higher prices all around. And for what?
