Newcastle told to pay over the odds for Twente’s de Jong

Newcastle United have been warned it will take a substantial fee to sign FC Twente striker Luuk de Jong, the Northern Echo has reported.



De Jong is said to be Newcastle’s main transfer priority this summer and a delegation is in the Netherlands in order to conduct negotiations for the 21-year-old. The club has already made a £6.5m offer for de Jong this summer but Twente quickly rejected that amount, instead holding out for a fee closer to €15m. There is also interest from German side Borussia Monchengladbach.


Twente are managed by former England boss Steve McClaren, who has said he expects de Jong to say at his current club unless Newcastle dramatically increase the amount of money they are offering for the striker. McClaren said: “He will remain with us unless stupid money is offered… he must have at least one full season as a striker for us before he can move to another club.


De Jong was part of the Netherlands squad that was eliminated at the group stage of Euro 2012 without winning a game, while the Echo adds that de Jong is thought to be keen to leave Holland, wanting to test himself at a higher level of regular competition.

He also said if it was up to him, which you did not quote. NUFC managing director and club secretary are already in Holland, check the Journal and Evening Chronicle. - Both local and reliable!
