It is understood that the Magpies have high hopes for the stopper, and now view him as a major asset, whether that be as a future first choice in the future, or as a resale asset.
Woodman has been a revelation since signing for Swansea over the summer, and it’s little wonder that the Magpies are expecting such big things from him. His consistency and impressive displays have been a key factor for City in their push to regain a position in the top flight, and the hope will be from a Toon perspective that he can prove he has the credentials to cut it at the highest level. He has already received plenty of attention, with the stopper named in Whoscored’s Championship team of the month for August. It will be interesting see whether United choose to give him a shot at the number one jersey when he returns, but even if they don’t, they could be in for a decent profit.
