The 21-year-old striker has been in fine form in the first half of the season, scoring six goals and assisting two more in the league for the Frisian club, while also netting three more in the KNVB cup.

Lammers current form, age, and fantastic goalscoring record for Jong PSV mean that the striker is highly regarded in Eindhoven, making any move for him particularly difficult. Yet Newcastle are hopeful of securing a loan move in January with a view to a permanent deal in the summer window.
