Siem de Jong has completed a season-long loan move to PSV Eindhoven, it was announced on Monday afternoon.

Newcastle announced on their official website that the playmaker, 27, will spend the 2016-17 campaign at the reigning Eredivisie champions.

PSV’s recruitment chief Marcel Brands revealed that the Dutch side were set to sign De Jong this week as the two clubs put the finishing touches to the deal.

Goal claimed earlier this month that PSV are looking to give the former Ajax star a second chance in an attempt to breathe life into his career.

PSV currently have Siem’s brother Luuk in their squad and the pair have now been reunited this summer.

Siem signed for the Magpies on a six-year deal in 2014 following a £6million transfer from Dutch giants Ajax, but his time in Tyneside has been plagued by numerous injuries which has reduced his playing time to only four starts for the club.

In total, De Jong has played just 26 matches for Newcastle, scoring two goals and supplying a single assist.

The Magpies’ number 10 had fallen down the pecking order at St. James’ Park, after the signings of Matt Ritchie, Mohamed Diame and Dwight Gayle.

In other Newcastle transfer news, they have opened talks with a 125-goal continental hotshot.
