Yankuba Minteh’s future at Newcastle

Newcastle United

Yankuba Minteh’s future at Newcastle United is uncertain as the summer transfer window approaches. The 19-year-old Gambian winger has returned from his season-long loan spell at Dutch club Feyenoord and has the opportunity to showcase his talent to Newcastle boss Eddie Howe. However, there are speculations that he might leave this summer.

According to Transfermarkt, Minteh has been valued at $15 million. His potential transfer could play a significant role in Newcastle’s financial situation, potentially earning the club a substantial profit as they acquired him for only $8.5 million. While this could be a successful business move, it would also mean losing an incredible talent from Howe’s squad.

How good is Minteh?

In the previous season, the talented youngster Yankuba Minteh made significant contributions while playing for the Dutch side Feyenoord under the guidance of the newly appointed Liverpool manager, Arne Slot. Despite Feyenoord finishing as runners-up, trailing the league leaders PSV by 7 points, Minteh’s performance stood out. At the age of 19, he showcased his prowess by contributing to 16 goals in 27 matches. His exceptional skills in dribbling, finishing, and creating key passes were evident throughout the season. However, there remains room for improvement in his crossing abilities, a key area for a winger. With the right mentorship and strategic utilization within an attacking team, Minteh has the potential to flourish and make a significant impact.

Transfer Rumours regarding Minteh

There have been various names that have come up with the intension of buying Yankuba Minteh. However, Newcastle have clearly stated that they are not ready to permanently sell him but instead carry out another loan spell.

According to MagpieMedia – via X, clubs like Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig have approached Newcastle regarding a season long loan deal for the 2024/25 season. Other clubs like PSV, Feyenoord and Bologna, where Yankuba Minteh has spent most of his time have also shown a keen interest in loaning the 19 years old Gambian winger. However, for now, Dortmund and Leipzig are the only two sides that have approached.

Liverpool F.C are not going to make a move for Minteh even though he has played under the newly appointed manager Arne Slot at Feyenoord. The Reds are not going to sign Yankuba Minteh neither on a permanent spell nor on a loan deal.

The youngster has garnered interest mainly from teams in the Bundesliga. However, if he excels during the Japan tour, it could capture the attention of Eddie Howe and Newcastle.
