Agent: Luuk de Jong is ready for the next step in his career

The Netherlands international's representative has revealed that his client is ready to leave Twente and hopes that the Eredivisie club places a fair valuation on the player
The agent of Twente striker Luuk de Jong has declared that his client is ready to make the next step in his career, with Borussia Monchengladbach ready to pounce.

A delegation of Gladbach officials are already in Netherlands to strike a deal, and hope that the inclusion of young Swedish left back Oscar Wendt could tip the scales in their favor.

"We've made it clear to Twente that De Jong is ready for his next step," agent Louis Laros told Voetbal International.

"The important thing considered by him will be how serious the sporting project is. We are not overly concerned about the money, what matters more to De Jong is the club's plans and how they plan to use him.

"I hope that Twente do not lose sight of reality though, and demand only a fair market price."

Newcastle already had a 15 million euro bid reportedly turned down by the Dutch club.
