Newcastle to move for Gladbach striker Luuk de Jong

Newcastle United are being linked with Borussia Monchengladbach striker Luuk de Jong.

De Jong is set to leave Gladbach on-loan from January.

Club board member Hans Meyer said: "We will possibly loan Luuk at Christmas but definitely not to a competitor.

"Our head coach Lucien Favre has said from the start he didn't have 100% confidence in De Jong filling the striker position but I think we'll find a solution."

PA Sport says it is understood Newcastle are monitoring the situation.
