According to Dutch media, Erik Pieters will be signing a 4 year deal on Tyneside.
Hope this is true as he is regarded as a decent defender, when you think of Jose Enrique his defending skills aren't exactly at the forefront of your mind. With also only 2 assists to Enriques name, you could argue he was a bit toothless down the wing as well.
Let's just hope this news is true and we get ourselves a Dutch International quality full back to replace an uninterested non-international overrated 'wing back', for the same amount of money.
Get him in!
