West Ham and Fulham to battle Newcastle for Douglas


Bookmark and Share

By Dale Why

Monday 23 July 2012

Newcastle United have been joined by fellow Premier League clubs West Ham and Fulham in the race to sign FC Twente star Douglas, according to the London Evening Standard.



The 24-year-old has been a long term target of Alan Pardew’s and a deal bringing the defender to the Sports Direct Arena had been thought to be close, however it now appears West Ham and Fulham have both made bids for the player who is valued at around £3.5mi.


FC Twente chairman Joop Munsterman admits confusion over a potential transfer to Newcastle. He said: “It is unclear what Newcastle United and Douglas want exactly. Douglas says he wants to leave one week and the next week he wants to stay.


The Brazilian born centre-back has yet to appear for the Brazil national side and last November he received a Dutch passport, entitling him to play for the Netherlands, something the player has expressed an interest in doing.


Appearing for FC Twente on 115 occasions since his 2007 move from Brazilian side Joinville and despite being an integral part of Steve McClaren’s side, the club are willing to sell if the right offer is tabled.
