A week ago, Voetbal International journalist Martijn Krabbendam stated Feyenoord won’t be able to retain Newcastle United’s Yankuba Minteh because the Premier League side are considering selling him in the summer window.

The Magpies signed the winger from Danish side Odense Boldklub and immediately loaned him out to Feyenoord last summer.

Minteh will have to return to Newcastle, where he has a deal until 2028. Eddie Howe & co. will then have to make a decision on whether or not to include him in their plans next season.

As of now, the 19-year-old isn’t clear if he will return to the Eredivisie side next season, and he mentioned this during an interview with Feyenoord’s YouTube channel, relayed by

“At the moment, I don’t know what will happen. How the supporters treat me is very special, but I don’t know at the moment whether I will leave or stay. We’ll see what the future brings,” he said.

The Newcastle owned player has scored 11 goals and registered six assists from 37 games for Feyenoord, and won the Dutch club with them this season.

The Gambia international is pleased with his performances, even though he didn’t manage to achieve the target he had in his mind.

“I think this has been a good season. The beginning was a bit tough for me because I wasn’t used to the playing style, but my teammates helped me adapt and it went well,” Minteh explained.

“That I wanted to become champion, but that didn’t go according to plan. In the end we won the cup and that made me happy, because I wanted to achieve something here in the Netherlands before I take a step to a higher level. Every player ultimately wants to be at the highest level.”

Feyenoord finished second in the table, seven points behind eventual league winners PSV Eindhoven.
