Newcastle target De Jong blows fuse over Twente price

FC Twente striker Luuk de Jong is furious being blocked from signing for Tottenham.

The Daily Star Sunday says De Jong has hit out at the £16million fee slapped on his head by FC Twente.

Newcastle had an initial £8m bid turned down and are believed to have increased that to £10m. Twente boss Steve McClaren warned it would take "stupid money'' to land de Jong and chairman Joop Munsterman agreed.

De Jong said: "I fell off my chair when I heard Munsterman."
