Newcastle not giving up on bid for Twente striker De Jong

Newcastle United aren't giving up on FC Twente striker Luuk de Jong.

Newcastle United aren't giving up on FC Twente striker Luuk de Jong.

The Journal says United want de Jong despite having an £8.5million deal rejected and the move is not dependent on Demba Ba’s future.

While the move has been mothballed while the player is on holiday, a further offer for the Twente man could be tabled as early as next week.
