Sven Botman admits he could join Newcastle in the summer

Sven Botman has refused to rule out a summer transfer to Newcastle after a move to St James’ Park did not materialise during the now-closed January window.

The Dutchman was Newcastle’s primary target at centre-back last month.

But Lille was incredibly reluctant to do business after accepting their fate.

The Magpies pursued plenty of other defenders and eventually signed Dan Burn from Brighton.

Newcastle is expected to reignite their interest at the end of the season.


Speaking to Ziggo Sport, Botman confessed that the project on offer on Tyneside had captured his imagination.

“Everyone says about Newcastle – it’s all about money,” he began. “But it’s a very nice project if you look at where Man City and PSG started. So I think it would be very nice to be part of that.”

However, he also refused to rule out joining another suitor as well. In January, AC Milan was hot on Botman’s tail, and the defender confessed that Milan is a ‘beautiful club’.

He continued: “I’m fine at Lille for the time being. I assume that I will take a good step in my career next summer. You never know in football. This time both Newcastle and Milan were in very concrete talks. Both clubs have their positive points.”

Newcastle ended their transfer window having signed Kieran Trippier, Chris Wood, Bruno Guimaraes, Dan Burn and Matt Targett, who joined on loan from Aston Villa.

They ultimately fell short in moves for Reims striker Hugo Ekitike and Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard. Still, manager Eddie Howe will hope to have enough recruits to help steer the Magpies out of a relegation battle.

Sven Botman, what will he bring to the table?

In Ligue-1. In terms of ball-playing a centre-back, Sven Botman is one of the best.

Due to his left-footedness, he has an advantage over other defenders.

And the Dutch defender could be a strong foundation for Resurgent Newcastle United.

What lies ahead for Newcastle United?

Now, Newcastle United will try to avoid relegation from the Premier League.

And from next season, they will add some reinforcement to their squad.
