Freddie Woodman is weighing up his future with Newcastle United.

The Evening Chronicle says Woodman does not want to return to play second or third fiddle so another loan is a possibility. The stopper is wanted by Arsenal and Southampton but Newcastle want to keep hold of him.

He says he will return with the aim of being number one.

"Football is so volatile and unpredictable, and so many different things can happen between now and the start of next season," he said. "But the good thing about my mentality is I take every day as it comes. Currently I'm a Swansea player and that's it. When I go back to Newcastle I'll have the same mentality I had coming here. I'll train and try to be No 1, and if that doesn't happen I'll work hard and keep trying to improve.

"Newcastle have fantastic goalkeepers. I've worked with Martin and Karl for a good amount of time now and they're two of my closest friends.

"If I can put myself up against top goalkeepers then I can only improve, because it's good to have a competitive goalkeeping group. It makes it exciting."
