FC Twente defender Douglas is a transfer target for Newcastle United, according to reports.

Newcastle United are interested in signing FC Twente defender Douglas, according to The Chronicle.

Magpies manager Alan Pardew has turned his attention to the Brazilian, having reportedly failed in a bid to sign Watford centre-back Adrian Mariappa.

However, Twente manager Steve McClaren is thought to be keen on keeping hold of Douglas and wants the 24-year-old to sign a new deal.

Newcastle have already spent around £9m this month to take Freiburg striker Papiss Cisse to Tyneside.
