Willems missing from Eintracht Frankfurt training amid Toon talk

Newcastle Bruce

The Mirror revealed on Sunday evening that Bruce has chose to put a stop to their reported pursuit of the former West Ham striker after splashing the cash on new arrivals Allan Saint-Maximin and Joelinton. The 22-year-old scored six goals and registered five assists in 34 league games for Nice last season.

"I'm delighted to bring Allan to St. James' Park".

Reported to be signing a six-year contract at St James' Park, the French winger has apparently already travelled to the north of England to undergo his medical.

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 club signed 25-year-old left-back joined the Magpies on a one-year loan deal from Eintracht Frankfurt.

"He has all the attributes you would want in an attacking player, including lightning pace, so I'm sure he'll excite everybody".

The 25-year-old left-back - who has 22 global caps - made 36 appearances for the Bundesliga outfit last term.

Newcastle's interest, however, has been rekindled this summer and reports in the north-east of England suggest the Premier League club have agreed personal terms with the Netherlands global.

Amiens only signed Krafth on a permanent deal earlier this summer following a loan spell from Bologna.

He moved to Frankfurt in 2017 and won the German Cup that season.

Newcastle's £16.5million signing appears to have the edge when it comes to end product and is someone that is on the rise.
