Newcastle United have signed Dutch striker Luuk De Jong on loan until the end of the season with an option for the deal to be made permanent.

De Jong moves to Tyneside from Borussia Monchengladbach. The 23-year-old forward will wear the number 18 shirt for Newcastle.

Newcastle United Director of Football, Joe Kinnear, said:

“We’re delighted to bring Luuk de Jong to the Club.

“He has an excellent pedigree and will add significantly to our striking options.

“We’ve been watching him for a little while now and I am sure he will prove to be a valuable acquisition for us.

“He’s a great character and a proven goalscorer who I know is very keen to replicate the prolific form he showed for FC Twente in the Eredivisie.”

The news about De Jong’s arrival coincided with midfielder Yohan Cabaye leaving Newcastle United to join Paris Saint-Germain.

One Response to Newcastle Sign Striker Luuk De Jong On Loan Until End Of Season

  1. Brian says:

    This would mean that Cisse is probably moving on.

    Liverpool and Manchester City target Ada Turan is conspicuously missing from Athletico Madrid’s squad tonight which has led to speculation that he may be moving to another club. He has a 30 million pound release clause so City might be favorites to land him. Something to keep an eye out for in the last days of the transfer window.
