Pieters close to joining Magpies

PSV Eindhoven defender Erik Pieters is on the brink of completing a move to Newcastle United, according to his agent.

Netherlands international Pieters, 23, is the man Alan Pardew has earmarked to fill the left-back position following the departure of Jose Enrique to Liverpool, and he is expected to cost in the region of £6.5 million.

The two clubs have struggled to see eye-to-eye over a fee since talks began, but agent Piet van der Pol has revealed a deal is close.

"Newcastle's interest is very serious and Erik finds the club a real challenge," Van der Pol said. "I don't know the exact numbers of Newcastle's offer, but I'm pretty sure that the transfer will go ahead."

Pieters joined PSV Eindhoven from Utrecht in 2008 for around £2 million, and established himself as a first-choice for the national team following the retirement of Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
