Newcastle United must up their bid to land FC Twente defender Douglas.

The Telegraph says it is understood that Newcastle submitted a formal offer amounting to more than €4 million last night for the 24-year-old and are now waiting to hear back.

However, it is also understood that Twente have placed a higher – if not much higher – valuation on the player, who is being courted by a series of other clubs, thought to include Fulham and West Ham United.
