There was news yesterday that Newcastle were leading the race for 25 year-old Brazilian center-half Douglas, a player Newcastle were after last summer, but the center-back decided to stay at his Dutch club for one more year.
Douglas - 93% think he’d be a good signing
Of course he’ll cost nothing in transfer fees, but as Derek LLambias points out, nobody comes in for nothing, and the club will need to pay his agents some money, and his contract is likely to be a good one too.
The Italian press yesterday were reporting that Newcastle’s offer was the best one he’s received – so we hope that’s true.
His six years at Dutch club FC Twente ends on June 30th, and we wanted to gauge whether Newcastle fans think he would be a signing.
A massive 93% think he would be a good buy (at the time of writing this), and the poll is still open if you haven’t yet voted – only one vote per reader so we get an accurate assessment of what fans think.
