Newscastle look set to sign PSV Eindhoven defender Erik Pieters after the Dutch side gave the player permission to speak with the North East club.

Eindhoven boss Fred Rutten said that the player is now free to join Newcastle for £6million to replace Jose Enrique.

‘I would lie in the road to stop him leaving but I fear I cannot block his transfer to Newcastle,’ said Rutten.

‘He is a brilliant defender, but, if it is right for him and the club, I cannot say no.’
