Newcastle United face competition for FC Twente striker Luuk de Jong.

The Daily Star Sunday says Twente are demanding £15m – and that Borussia Monchengladbach also want him to play in the Bundesliga.

Newcastle are keen to bring in a goalscorer before Demba Ba – who has a £7m exit clause in his contract – makes an expected departure to Galatasaray in Turkey.

And Twente boss Steve McClaren insists Toon must pay “stupid money’’ to land De Jong.
