Newcastle United chiefs have jetted to Holland to try and complete deals for FC Twente duo Luuk de Jong and Douglas.

Toon officials Derek Llambias and Lee Charnley are believed to have flown to the Netherlands to open talks with the Dutch club over the duo.

Striker de Jong is the main target, with United worried about interest from German giants Borrusia Monchengladbach, as revealed by the Gazette yesterday.

But they are also keen on resurrecting an interest in Brazilian-born centre-half Douglas, who they have scouted extensively.

Boss Alan Pardew flew to Holland a number of times to watch the player, who is destined to leave Twente this summer after failing to report back for pre-season training, much to the annoyance of manager Steve McClaren.

De Jong, meanwhile, is also expected to leave the club after bagging 39 goals in 76 appearances.

Twente value him at £12m, but United are set to bid closer to £10m as chief executive Llambias and secretary Charnley look to drive a hard bargain.
