The agent of FC Twente striker Luuk de Jong has revealed the interest of Newcastle United and Liverpool.

However, Louis Laros doesn't believe Twente will allow the Holland international to leave in June.

"I don't think a transfer is possible [to Liverpool or Newcastle] because I don't think FC Twente will let him leave in the winter transfer period," Laros told IBTimes UK. "If there is a possible transfer then I think it is at the end of the season.

"I haven't received a phone call from Liverpool or Newcastle that they are completely interested in Luuk de Jong. For this moment, I think it is just a rumour.

"I know they [Liverpool and Newcastle] are watching him but I have had no direct contact with both clubs over a possible transfer."
