Douglas nervous about joining chaotic Newcastle

The arrival of Joe Kinnear as new director of football at Newcastle United has put a deal for FC Twente defender Douglas in major doubt.

Douglas was a top Bosman target for Toon and has stated he wants to move to England this summer.

But Kinnear's arrival has confused the situation, says De Telegraaf, along with demands from various agents over finders' fees. The resignation of Derek Llambias as Newcastle managing director has further cast doubt on Douglas' arrival.
