Siem de Jong Signs For NUFC

Siem de Jong Signs For NUFC

In a bit of a surprise move, Newcastle United seemed to do a player deal under the radar.

The signing of Ajax captain, Seim de Jong now being completed after we spoke of alleged interest earlier.

A 6 year contract has been confirmed but actual money leaving Mike Ashley's hand to pay for something for the benefit of the club can't be confirmed so the fee is undisclosed.

De Jong is a versatile attacking player who is best suited behind the forwards (whatever they are), a gaping hole left by the sale of Yohan Cabaye has at least been filled in body, just got to hope he's some way as good, although his captaincy experience will help us no end.

De Jong was quoted on the official NUFC website as saying:

It is great to have signed for Newcastle. It is a big club which my brother told me all about, so I already feel good here.
