Holland left-back Erik Pieters would be interested in joining Newcastle this summer, according to his agent.

The 23-year-old PSV Eindhoven defender - currently sidelined with a foot injury - has been linked with a summer switch to Tyneside and, although it is understood there has been no formal approach as yet, the idea is already interesting Pieters.

"He was interested last year," agent Piet van der Pol told the Newcastle Journal. "Newcastle United is a fantastic club and I know that Erik follows them because of his friendship with Tim Krul."
