However, de Jong has struggled in Germany with the Foals prompting director Hans Meyer to suggest that he could be loaned out this winter.
“We will possibly loan Luuk at Christmas but definitely not to a competitor,” he said.

Reports suggest that Newcastle are again curious about de Jong and could make a move in January.
