Freddie Woodman 'would love' to return to Swansea City as Newcastle United face summer dilemma
Newcastle United goalkeeper Freddie Woodman admits he would love to return to Swansea City after failing to rule out another spell at the Liberty Stadium.
The 24-year-old is set to line up for the Swans at Wembley on Saturday as they take on Brentford for a place in the Premier League.
It will bring the curtain down on a hugely successful two years on loan in South Wales and provide a dilemma for Steve Bruce this summer with Martin Dubravka and Karl Darlow both enjoying strong campaigns on Tyneside.
Bruce may decide Woodman is better suited for another temporary move away from St James’s Park, and it is clear where the former England under-20s World Cup winner would prefer to end up.

"I think everyone knows that I’d love to come back,” Woodman told BBC Sport.
"It’s a fantastic football club and I feel like in two years I’ve developed so much – I’ve become a better person and a better footballer. That’s credit to the club and the manager for the way he goes about doing things.
"I’d love to come back but in football, a lot of things are out of your hands so we’ll have to see what happens.”
Woodman, who will make his 95th appearance for Swansea in the Championship play-off final, said: “In my head, I’ve got one more game left as a Swansea City player, so I’m going to make the most of it and treasure it.
"You never know what can happen. If it is my last game in a Swansea shirt, I’ll manage to do it at Wembley which is nice.”
