FC Twente coach Steve McClaren says they'll only sell Luuk de Jong for "stupid money".

FC Twente coach Steve McClaren says they'll only sell Luuk de Jong for "stupid money".

Newcastle United are understood to have failed in an initial £8million bid for De Jong earlier in June and Twente boss McClaren remains unwilling to sell.

The former Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest manager is quoted as telling Dutch media: "Luuk de Jong would stay if it were up to me - unless stupid money is offered.

"The club know what I think about it."
