Newcastle Uinted are chasing Ajax captain Siem de Jong.

The Daily Mail says Toon are planning to bring the brilliant Ajax captain to the Premier League in a £9million deal that will show their transfer ambition.

De Jong, 23, is a playmaker who can play either in midfield or attack. He can also play as an old-fashioned No 10 and his capture will excite the Newcastle fans.

He has scored seven goals in 18 league games this season and this Swiss-born attacker would light up St James' Park.
