Janmaat was not selected in the Dutch squad for their important Euro2016 qualifying clashes against Iceland and Turkey next month by new manager Blind and his decision has left quite a few in Newcastle a bit surprised.
Magpies boss McClaren was taken aback by the decision while Janmaat himself seemed to disagree with his exclusion from the team.
McClaren said: "It surprises me, but I'm not the national manager of Holland. I know he's changed but I'm very surprised.
Janmaat also had his say by stating: "There is a new coach with a new vision and has his own preferences. Apparently I am not one of them."
