De Jong joins Monchengladbach

Borussia Monchengladbach have completed the signing of Luuk de Jong from FC Twente on a five-year contract.

The move was rubber-stamped on Wednesday after weeks of negotiations between Gladbach and FC Twente, with De Jong, 21, passing his medical on Tuesday evening.

The Netherlands international, who was linked with Newcastle, scored 39 goals in 75 appearances over the past two seasons for Twente.

"We are really delighted that this transfer has finally gone through," Gladbach's director of sport Max Eberl said.

"Luuk will be able to travel with us into our training camp at Tegernsee on Friday."

"With Luuk de Jong, we are getting a highly-talented attacker who, despite being only 21, already has a wealth of experience in Europe with FC Twente and the Dutch national team."
