Newcastle officials in Holland for Twente talks over De Jong

Newcastle United officials were in Holland yesterday for talks over FC Twente striker Luuk de Jong.

The Evening Chronicle says United have already bid once at £8million but appear ready to increase that offer with a trip to the Netherlands a signal of intent.

United are concerned over their striking options ahead of the new season - not least with the possibility of Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse potentially taking part in the African Cup of Nations in January.
