Newcastle United in pole for de Jong
Newcastle United Football Club are in pole position to land Luuk de Jong.
The Holland international has been a prolific scorer of goals for FC Twente, who know they have a fight to retain his services beyond the summer.
A number of clubs have already been linked with the 21-year-old, but the Express claim it is Newcastle who are leading the chase for his signature.
Alan Pardew knows he faces losing Demba Ba if his £7million release clause is met, and he would then look to take de Jong for a similar price.
