Newcastle have completed the loan signing of Dutch striker Luuk de Jong from Borussia Monchengladbach.
De Jong signed for Monchengladbach for a reported £12.6m back in 2012, having scored 45 goals in 86 games for Dutch Eredivisie side FC Twente.
The striker has struggled in the Bundesliga however, and has scored just six league goals since his move.
“It has been a tough season for me so far but I am here to play games and want to be important for the team, and successful with goals and assists,” said De Jong, who will wear the number 18 shirt.
“I am really looking forward to playing for Newcastle.”
