Newcastle United youngster Yankuba Minteh has insisted he’s not thinking about the Magpies just yet, despite being in the final period of his loan spell at Feyenoord.

The winger has been speaking to Voetbal International, relayed by FR 12, insisting that his focus is fully on life in the Netherlands.

Minteh joined Newcastle United from Odense BK in an €8m deal in the summer but was immediately loaned out to Feyenoord for the season so he could establish himself and continue his development with the Dutch champions.

He’s certainly been able to do that, managing six goals and three assists in 25 games in all competitions this season, including both the Europa League and Champions League.

It’s been a good season for the 19-year-old, so much so that there were some calls for him to return to Newcastle earlier this season as they dealt with an injury crisis.

That never happened and he remained where he was, continuing his development under Arne Slot and continuing to win fans. The Dutch side are now in their final games of the season and for Minteh that could mean his attention moving to Newcastle, but he insists that’s not the case.

“I didn’t always have an easy time at Feyenoord,” he said.

“I got injured, then the African Cup got in the way, so I was able to play less than might have been possible. It is not easy to be a Feyenoord winger.

“You have to score goals and provide assists and perform your defensive duties. That’s a lot, but not an issue for me. That’s how I grew up as a football player: first your tasks, then attack.”

“’m not done yet at Feyenoord. I want to show more of what I have to offer. We are no longer active in Europe, but there are still plenty of great matches to come.”
