RKC Waalwijk youngster Denzel Slager is set for trials with Newcastle United.

Slager, 19, is expected to kickoff trials at Newcastle in the coming days after being granted permission by RKC.

The young striker only moved to RKC in the summer from FC Utrecht and has a contract to 2014. "Slager is a great talent. He will have the opportunity in the first week of January to go to Newcastle for trials," said RKC technical manager Janus van Gelder.
