FC Twente striker Luuk De Jong has gone public on his future over the weekend and said he would consider a move to the Premiership.

 Alan Pardew has tracked him since Christmas and could make a move - although he told the Chronicle he will not do any business until after Euro 2012.

Luuk De Jong: “If something very attractive comes along, then I’ll consider it.

"A move to the Premiership would tempt anyone, and yes it could happen.

“No matter what happens playing at Twente has been a wonderful experience.”

The Toon boss has already sanctioned the release of Denmark international Peter Lovenkrands and Leon Best has been made surplus to requirements, while Nile Ranger will be sold to the first team that produce the right cash bid.
