Willems missing from Eintracht Frankfurt training amid Toon talk

Willems missing from Eintracht Frankfurt training amid Toon talk

The 22-year-old, who can play on either wing and as a centre-forward, moves to St James' Park on a six-year deal.

Bruce told fans that his lightning pace will keep them excited in the stands, and that he's a great addition to the English game.

The pair will become Bruce's second and third signings of the summer transfer window following the arrival of Brazilian striker Joelinton from Hoffenheim for a club-record fee last month.

While he has enjoyed success during his time with Nice, the 22-year-old had an unsuccessful spell at Monaco prior to that, managing just two substitute appearances. The France U21 global scored six goals and five assists in 34 Ligue 1 appearances last season.

German club Eintracht Frankfurt have revealed left-back Jetro Willems missed training on Friday as he was "free to conduct transfer calls" amid reported interest from Newcastle United.

Andy Carroll will not be making an emotional return to his boyhood club Newcastle after manager Steve Bruce insisted he is happy with his strikeforce.

The France U21 global has huge potential to be a big signing for the Magpies, as they look to distance themselves from the bottom of the Premier League table under the tutelage of Bruce.

Meanwhile, Newcastle confirmed their fourth signing of the summer within an hour before announcing Saint-Maximin.

Newcastle clearly need to steer well clear of this potential banana skin signing, with the Magpies clearly targeting younger options such as Joelinton who is nine-years Carroll's junior.

"He has played at the highest level and is naturally left-footed so he'll give us another strong option on that side".
