“It depends on Newcastle” – Magpies player says he’s tempted to be elsewhere next season


Yankuba Minteh of Feyenoord celebrates after scoring his teams second goal during the Dutch Eredivisie match between Almere City FC and Feyenoord at Yanmar Stadion on February 25, 2024 in Almere, Netherlands. 

Last summer, Newcastle United signed Yankuba Minteh from Danish side Odense Boldklub and offered him a contract until 2028.

The winger is currently on loan at Feyenoord and has impressed for them this season, scoring 10 goals and registering four assists from 32 games. This includes a brace and an assist in the Eredivisie side’s 6-0 crushing victory over Ajax on Sunday.

After the tie, the Newcastle owned player spoke to ESPN’s Hans Kraay Jr. and his quotes are relayed by Feyenoord Pings.

Kraay Jr pointed out to the 19-year-old that his deal with the Magpies lasts until 2028, but the latter said he “knows nothing about it”.

The journalist laughed and asked Minteh if he didn’t know about his contract situation at Newcastle. When responding to that, the Gambia international talked about the possibility of extending his stay at Feyenoord.

“No. My focus is here. I am a Newcastle player, but at the moment I play for Feyenoord,” Minteh explained.

“Would I like to play for Feyenoord next season? I don’t know. Feyenoord are a great club and if I get the opportunity, I would like to stay, but it depends on Newcastle United’s decision.”

The Dutch club don’t have an option or obligation to make the Newcastle man’s loan deal permanent.

A month ago, Feyenoord manager Arne Slot stated Eddie Howe’s side will have to make a decision on the attacker’s future in the summer, and Minteh has now backed that up.
