The striker has now told the Daily Mirror that he is desperate to impress the Newcastle bosses and earn a permanent stay on Tyneside.

De Jong said,“I would like to be important for this team, in terms of goals and assists, and work hard. I’m on loan with an option to stay and I would like to go on with this option if it is possible.” “Of course I would like to try to impress enough to stay.”

It has been revealed in certain media quarters that the Premier league club will have to shell out 8 million pounds to land the seven times capped Dutch international.
