According to Portuguese media outlet, O Jogo PSV Eindhoven are interested in offering Djuricic a way back to the Eredivisie, and a chance to get his career back on track.

However the agent of the Serbian international, Oliver Cabrera, met with Newcastle United representatives in London last week, with the Premier League club favourites to sign the 22-year-old. Newcastle tried to sign Djuricic in January, and reportedly had a €12 million bid rejected by Benfica.

The superior spending power of Newcastle makes it almost impossible for PSV Eindhoven to win the battle for Djuricic’s signature, especially with the prospect of no European football in Eindhoven next season.
