Newcastle United have agreed a fee for PSV Eindhoven ‘keeper Jeroen Zoet, according to the Daily Mirror.
Zoet has reportedly been recommended as a potential addition by controversial director of football Joe Kinnear, as Alan Pardew looks to bolster his squad for the new season.
The Toon are expected to have to pay out £2.5 million to bring the shot-stopper to St. James’ Park.
The 22-year-old has been out on loan at RKC Waalwijk for the past two seasons, where he has impressed enough to attract interest from the Premier League.
Zoet is expected to be the understudy for his compatriot Tim Krul when he joins up with his new teammates.
The Dutch U21 international has made 67 appearances in the Eredivisie over the past two seasons and was called up the full national side last year, although he wasn’t capped.
The signing also puts the future of current number two goalkeeper, Rob Elliot, in doubt as his first-team chances are likely to be limited.
