Newcastle In Two For One Offer To FC Twente?
The plot thickens following our story earlier regarding claims from Holland that Newcastle United’s Derek Llambias and secretary Lee Charnley were in the Netherlands today to discuss a possible deal for Luuk De Jong.
Their visit is now widely reported elsewhere which appears to confirm their visit but an extra layer has been added with reports that the visit is to discuss possible deals for De Jong AND centre-back, Douglas.
The Brazilian, soon to be eligible for the Dutch team, has been closely linked with a move to Newcastle for some time. Alan Pardew made clear his and the club’s intentions when stating in an end of season radio phone-in as fact that United would be bringing in a commanding centre-back who could add goals from another part of the team.
At the age of only 24 and an imposing 6ft 4, Douglas would fall into that category, particularly since Vertonghen looks to be heading from Ajax to White Hart Lane.
