Matz Sels’ time at Newcastle United can be summed up quite quickly.

Bought for £6m from Gent in Belgium, the goalkeeper only ever made 14 appearances in the two years he spent contracted at St James’ Park, one of which was on loan at Anderlecht, before being sold for £3.6m to Racing Club Strasbourg in Ligue 1.

Since his move to France, his stock has increased considerably as he’s performed well, and the 27-year-old still has a lot of football ahead of him.

That means he could one day return to the Premier League, and he admits himself in an interview with Walfoot that he’d like that despite his time at Newcastle, which he doesn’t regret.

He said: “I don’t live with regrets. It’s the past and it’s already a few years ago… It was my first experience abroad. I had some family issues and wasn’t at my best, even if there is no excuse.

“I hope to get another chance in the future to prove myself at the highest level. Maybe not like Thibaut Courtois at Real Madrid, but, you know… (smiles)”.

Since leaving Newcastle, Sels has featured 55 times for Strasbourg, conceding 68 goals and keeping 14 clean sheets in all competitions, which might not sound like a lot, but he did help them reach 11th last year against many odds.
