Newcastle In For Lukoki

Ajax midfielder Jody Lukoki is a target for Newcastle United boss Alan imagePardew.

The Daily Mail says Pardew and his scouting team have watched Ajax extensively over the past two years and it resulted in the signing of Vurnon Anita last summer.

Lukoki, 20, can play behind the striker or on the wing. He has played 14 games this season and scored three goals.

Newcastle, who are also keen to bring in a striker and a defender, hope a deal can be struck for around £3.5million.

One interesting fact is Lukoki shares the same agent as Newcastle legend Alan Shearer once did, and former Toon striker Michael Owen, which might influence the deal to happen in January.
