Newcastle back in for Monchengladbach striker de Jong

Newcastle have rekindled their interest in signing Monchengladbach striker Luuk de Jong, according to The Independent.


Luuk de Jong


The Magpies had tried to sign the 23-year-old while he was with FC Twente two years ago, but were ultimately unsuccessful in their pursuit. Stoke have emerged as transfer rivals, but Toon boss Alan Pardew looks set to up the chase and do his utmost to secure the player’s signature at the second time of asking.


Newcastle owner Mike Ashley is believed to be ready to release funds for the manager to sign four new players in the January transfer window, but this deal is thought to be one to be made on a loan basis.


Pardew has confirmed that he wants some new faces at St. James’ Park this month, and has assured fans that the club will be at the forefront of any potential deals by keeping their fingers on the pulse regarding any suitable players’ availability.


He said: “We’re making sure we’re on our toes in terms of the market. That’s what we’re going to try to do.”


Back in November, Monchengladbach director Hans Meyer implied that de Jong could be made available for loan this month after falling down the pecking order at Die Fohlen, saying “We will possibly loan Luuk at Christmas, but definitely not to a competitor.”


With Pardew’s past interest in the player a deal could certainly be in the offing.
