Newcastle not giving up on Twente striker De Jong

Newcastle United must cough up big to land FC Twente striker Luuk de Jong.

The Sun says Toon boss Alan Pardew has been told he can have striker De Jong - for £16million.

The Newcastle boss had already failed with a £10m bid for the FC Twente ace.

Joop Munsterman, chairman of the Dutch club, insisted: "For £12m, De Jong will not leave. But £16m would be an incredible amount."
