Newcastle United forward Albert Luque is set to join Dutch Eredivisie champions PSV on deadline day of the transfer window. Luque and PSV have agreed personal terms. The former Spanish international will join PSV on a five month loan.
PSV initially wanted to loan Luque for 18 months but Newcastle rejected the offer. PSV are now happy to have agreed a loan deal until the end of the season. Technical manager Stan Valkckx stated:
"We're glad that we've reached an agreement with such a big player, let's hope the final details will be sorted soon."
Newcastle United and PSV are currently sorting out the last details of the loan deal before Luque will be able to join the Eindhoven-outfit officially.
Luque was also linked with a loan move to Villarreal but the Spanish team opted to sign former Newcastle striker Jon Dahl Tomasson on loan.
