Newcastle ready to replace Ba with De Jong

Newcastle United will move for FC Twente striker Luuk de Jong if they're forced to sell Demba Ba.

The Daily Mail says De Jong will cost around £7million - the same fee they will receive for the Senegalese striker.

The Dutch ace has bagged 39 goals in 76 games at Twente and manager Steve McClaren knows it will be difficult to keep hold of his young talent.
