Luuk de Jong: Set for move to Germany
Sky Sports understands that Borussia Monchengladbach have agreed a deal with FC Twente for in-demand Luuk de Jong.
Newcastle United failed with a bid for the Dutch international earlier this summer, despite the fact they sent managing director Derek Llambias to Holland to negotiate the move.
Gladbach have always maintained an interest and now they have struck a deal with Twente reportedly around €20million.
It is now understood that De Jong is set to travel to Germany and will undergo a medical in the next 48 hours.
