25 year-old Ajax captain Siem de Jong, the older brother of Luuk de Jong, who had a failed loan spell at Newcastle this year, has again confirmed that Newcastle United are interested in signing him this summer.
Siem de Jong 25 year-old Ajax captain
Newcastle have been interested in de Jong for over two years now, and since he has just one year left on his contract at the Dutch giants, he should be available at a reasonable fee.
Siem doesn’t know what will happen this summer, but he knows Newcastle are interested, as he has said this in Soccer News.
“Newcastle had a little chat with my agent.¨ ¨There had been previous contact, but nothing concrete has been agreed.¨ ¨Newcastle is a great club.”
Siem joined Ajax from De Graafschap in 2005, and he made his debut for them in 2007, and since then he’s played 244 games for Ajax with 78 goals, and last season he scored 9 goals in 28 appearances.
He’s another goal-scoring midfielder that Newcastle are very interested in signing this summer.
We would love to see Siem sign on at Newcastle, and if he does, maybe we could give his younger brother another chance – and sign him on a one year loan deal from Borussia Monchengladbach.
Luuk would certainly be motivated to score some goals for Newcastle next season, but he may not get another chance.
