Luuk de Jong has backed brother Siem for success with Newcastle United.

Luuk spent the second-half of last season on-loan at Newcastle.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "He is an attacking midfielder with the quality to score goals, he has proven that at Ajax in their championship seasons.

"I was happy and proud that he had such a good start and I believe the fans will see much more."
