Borussia Monchengladbach striker, Luuk de Jong is off to Newcastle for a medical and is expected to join the English Premier League club on an initial loan deal.
The Netherlands international joined the German side for a reported £12.6m two years ago after scoring 45 goals in 86 games for FC Twente.
But the 23-year-old has found the net just six times in the Bundesliga.
“The striker is currently on his way to Newcastle for medical checks,” his club confirmed on Twitter.
De Jong could make his debut in Newcastle’s derby against Sunderland on Saturday.
