London (AFP) – Dutch international forward Siem de Jong has joined PSV Eindhoven on a season-long loan from Newcastle United, the English second-tier club announced on Monday.
De Jong, 27, joined Newcastle from Ajax two years ago, but injuries have prevented him from establishing himself at St James’ Park.
He has made just seven starts during that time, scoring twice in all competitions, and is currently recovering from a hamstring injury sustained during pre-season.
Newcastle did not say if the loan to PSV contained an option to buy.
The move to the Philips Stadion will re-unite De Jong with his younger brother, Luuk, who spent time at Newcastle in the 2013-14 season.
