We think that if everything had turned out well this summer, it was Newcastle intention to have both de Jong brothers, Luuk of Borussia Monchengladbach and Siem of Ajax at Newcastle, but Luuk didn’t show up well in his loan spell earlier this year, and Newcastle are no longer interested in signing the 23 year-old.
Siem de Jong – could arrive at Newcastle soon
But that’s not true of Siem De Jong, the Ajax captain, who we have been interested in now for about two years, and Siem has recently described Newcastle club as one of the great clubs.
Newcastle were in negotiations for Siem 17 months ago, but nothing came of those talks, but now with Siem having only one year left on his contract at Ajax, it seems that Newcastle want him on Tyneside this summer, and could get him in at a reasonable transfer fee.
The German website Der Sechzehner is reporting today that Luuk De Jong could move to PSV Eindhoven this summer, and to a league he has already shown he can score goals in when he was at FC Twente.
At the end of the season it was clear that Newcastle would not offer Luuk a permanent deal, but now would seem to be a good time for Newcastle to finally move in and sign Siem, although at the moment it seems Lee Charnley is working hard to get Bafe Gomis to the club this week, if possible.
Siem is a good and experienced player with excellent skills, and he also has good leadership skills, and he would be a very good acquisition for Newcastle.
And from the comments he has made recently – it seems he would be only too willing to sign on for the Tyneside club.
