Newcastle, Villa forced to wait for Twente defender Douglas

Newcastle United and Aston Villa must wait for FC Twente defender Douglas.

Both Premier League clubs are keen on Douglas and the defender is eager to clinch a move to England.

But the Brazilian has told all interested teams he won't leave Twente until August, when he finally gains his Dutch passport.

Douglas' camp fears he may miss out on a summer move away because of the delays.
