Newcastle United look to have signed FC Twente's unsettled defender Douglas, according to the Sunday Express.
The highly-rated Brazil-born player has long thought to have been a target for the Magpies, but interest appeared to have cooled recently.
Douglas is one of the most highly-rated defenders in the Eridivise, and while he has never gained national honours for the country of his birth, is tipped to be capped for Holland now that he has been granted Dutch citizenship.
