NEWCASTLE target Luuk de Jong has what it takes to be a Premier League hit.

That’s the verdict of the player’s agent Louis Laros, who admits that the Magpies are among the Dutchman’s suitors.

He said: “He would be the perfect fit for the Premier League. He is only young and there is no doubt about his quality – no one is debating that.

“Now the most important thing is to find the right club for Luuk, which is what we will do.”

Whether or nor United are that club remains to be seen, but they appear to be among the frontrunners, with Laros admitting to a lot of interest in his client.

However, Newcastle and the player’s club, FC Twente, have yet to agree a fee.

Laros said: “I can only confirm there has been interest from Newcastle in Luuk.

“I know that Newcastle are following him, that is no secret, but a club must first agree a fee with FC Twente, and so far this has not happened.

“I really don’t know what will happen next.

“It is not up to us at this moment, it is up to those clubs to show an interest and agree a financial deal with Twente.”
