Former England manager Steve McClaren has said that his current side FC Twente do not have to sell Luuk De Jong or Douglas.
Both players have been heavily linked to Newcastle United throughout the summer.
Reports have even suggested that United have agreed a fee for Douglas and have lodged a bid for De Jong that Twente have rejected.
McClaren said that his side do not need to sell either player but that every player ‘has their price’.
Striker De Jong, 21, was part of the Netherlands squad that crashed out of the European Championships this summer.
Defender Douglas, 24, is Brazilian but will receive a Dutch passport at the end of August.
But, despite his goal scoring exploits, McClaren said De Jong is not yet ready for the Premier League and should leave in a year.
Douglas only has one year remaining on his contract though and McClaren said that although Twente could keep him, he realises the situation is different.
He said: “Everybody has his price and with a year’s contract left to go, if somebody came in with an offer we couldn’t refuse then we’d have to let him (Douglas) go.”
