Reports – Young Dutch Starlet Joins Newcastle on Trial

Reports emanating from Holland suggest that Newcastle have taken young Dutch prospect, Dani Koks, on trial from Ajax.

A journalist from Dutch daily paper, De Telegraaf, has tweeted today with a photo of the 17 year-old midfielder at St. James’ Park.

The young midfielder played within Ajax’ youth system last season, though it is unclear at this stage whether he has been released by the Dutch club, or whether they have agreed for him to travel to Tyneside for the trial. Other sources have claimed he plays for Dutch side Willem II, but it remains unclear.

McClaren enjoys a good network of contacts in the Netherlands due to his two spells in charge of Eredivisie side FC Twente. And he will take a close look at Koks over the course of the next week, according to Dutch daily De Telegraaf.

Though there has been a severe lack of visible transfer activity so far this Summer for Toon fans, there have been suggestions in the press that this week could be a busy one for the Tyneside club.

After the side’s first pre-season friendly at Gateshead on Friday, a large squad is set to fly out to America ahead of three games in seven days.

Whether the squad will include a few new faces remains to be seen, but I certainly hope the club will have something to show by the time they fly out from Newcastle airport at the weekend.

Stay tuned, we expect to hear more over the next few days.
