Newcastle United's new signing Siem de Jong says that the club's ambition is to reach the Champions League.

Newcastle United's new signing Siem de Jong has insisted that the club's ambition is to secure Champions League football.

The 25-year-old will be part of Alan Pardew's team next season after signing a six-year deal for a reported £11m fee from Ajax on Tuesday.

The Magpies finished 10th in the Premier League last season, but De Jong has revealed that the North-East outfit have high ambitions.

"I think we're aiming for fourth and trying to be in the Champions League," De Jong told BBC Newcastle. "I think that is a nice goal, a tough goal, but one we're trying to aim for."

De Jong's brother Luuk spent six months on loan at Newcastle last season.
