Feyenoord sign 18-year-old Gambian winger Yankuba Minteh on loan from Newcastle United

Feyenoord have completed the loan signing of 18-year-old Yankuba Minteh Newcastle United. The Gambian winger joins the Dutch champions for one season after Newcastle signed him from Odense Boldklub for approximately €7m.

Yankuba Minteh featured 17 times in the Danish Superliga last season, scoring four goals and providing six assists for Odense. His superb form earned him a call-up to The Gambia national team last autumn. Minteh will give head coach Arne Slot an extra option on the flanks next season.

Speaking to the club website, Minteh said ‘I am looking forward to playing for the reigning Dutch champions. It is an honour to wear the Feyenoord shirt. I am grateful for this opportunity and will do everything I can to improve as a footballer. I am sure that Feyenoord will help me achieve my goals – just as I am convinced that I can in turn help Feyenoord in its sporting ambitions.’
