Newcastle United manager travels to Holland to personally watch Ajax duo Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew was in the stands at the Amsterdam Arena as Ajax beat Graafschap 3-1 on Sunday.

The main focus of his attention was said to be in-demand defender Jan Vertonghen, who claims to have received "a dozen" offers to leave his current employers.

The 24-year-old has stated that Arsenal is his preferred destination, but Pardew is hopeful that the personal visit to Holland may persuade the player to contemplate a move to Tyneside, according to the Daily Mail.

The Magpies boss is also reported to be interested in Vertonghen's defensive partner, Toby Alderweireld.
