If More Than One De Jong At Newcastle Next Season It Will Be Time To Worry
The signing of Siem De Jong is hopefully one of the first jigsaw pieces of Newcastle United’s transfer window which will lead to a credible team on the pitch next season.
However, Louis Laros, the agent for both Luuk and Siem De Jong, has hinted that the brothers may be reunited at St.James’ Park.
“Luuk is very happy for Siem, he gave him some good advice. The two brothers aren’t twins but they’re very very close.
“It could be an option for them to play together for Newcastle because the two are very complementary to each other.
“Luuk’s a striker and Siem play behind him, so that could be a perfect match.
“There is nothing happening at the moment but in the future you never know. Luuk is back in Germany at the moment as Newcastle did not take up the option to sign him.
“Newcastle maybe will come back later in the window for him as Newcastle are still looking for strikers.
“The door’s never closed.”
Long before Siem De Jong arrived, in fact as soon as Luuk ended his loan spell at Newcastle, I thought it’s a knocking bet he’ll be back on Tyneside next season. The fact we have just signed his brother adds extra oomph to that possibility/likelihood.

With Luuk De Jong not having scored a goal for fifteen months and the fact he was absolutely abysmal when on loan at Newcastle, I fail to see any club paying money for him and matching the wages he’ll be on after the big money move to the Bundesliga.
I believe that we will see the striker return to Newcastle for two reasons.
Firstly, because Newcastle would likely be the only club interested in taking him, even on loan.
The other being that United will still be at least one, or maybe two, strikers short for next season as it becomes more and more difficult to see where the club will buy credible goalscorers from.
A bit like the two Ameobis playing together, it’s a nice story for the newspapers but the football reality isn’t so pretty.
