Pieters poised for Toon move

BY foxsports • August 26, 2011

Reports in England suggest Pieters is due in the north-east today to discuss a move to St James' Park after Newcastle agreed a fee with PSV following weeks of negotiations. And Pieters admitted after Thursday night's 5-0 defeat of SV Ried in the Europa League may have been his PSV swansong. The 23-year-old told the Algemeen Dagblad newspaper: "If a club from the Premier League says they want you, and that is the case, then you know the financial means they have. "Whether I play for PSV at Excelsior on Sunday or am already at Newcastle I do not know. "I have not seen much of Newcastle myself but my friend (and fellow Dutchman) Tim Krul keeps me informed." Pieters joined PSV from FC Utrecht in 2008 and has made 78 league appearances for the Philips Stadion club.
