Newcastle see Twente's De Jong as Ba replacement

Newcastle United are chasing FC Twente striker Luuk de Jong.

The People says Newcastle have lined up Dutch striker De Jong as a replacement for Demba Ba.

Twente coach Steve McClaren has described De Jong as a 'typical British centre-forward' who would be well suited to the Premier League.

But the former England boss wants De Jong to stay another 12 months at Twente before making the move abroad.
