Newcastle could return to Ajax to sign Vurnon Anita's mate Dutch Under 21 international Jody Lukoki.

s

Alan Pardew's scouting team have watched Ajax extensively over the past two years - mainly checking out Vurnon Anita - but Lukoki has caught the eye.

Lukoki can play on the wing or behind the striker, and has three goals in 14 games so far this season

They hope a deal can be struck for around £3.5million, although the Dutch club value him at £5m-plus.

Lukoki keeps in touch with Anita, and it is said the youngster would jump at the chance to play in the Premiership.
