Now over to Eddie Howe and Newcastle United, as they decide what to do next season with the exciting young winger.

Back in April with this season’s end in sight, Yankuba Minteh talked to the media in Holland, saying he was loving his progress and now just a case of seeing what NUFC will decide ahead of the 2024/25 campaign. He said: “Things are going well with Feyenoord. I am developing myself here. You look at the bigger picture. I am young and I am here to learn. Sometimes my decisions [on the pitch] were terrible [earlier this season with Feyenoord] but you learn quickly. I can’t say anything about my future [for next season] yet. We will see what Newcastle United, where I’m under contract, will decide. However, another year at De Kuip [with Feyenoord], I wouldn’t mind that of course.”
