Douglas: FC Twente defender available on a free transfer

The Brazilian-born Dutch centre-half is available on a free transfer this summer as his contract with FC Twente is due to expire on July 1.

Newcastle United have a long-standing interest in the player, having previously tried to sign him, and Sky Sports understands they still have an interest - although reports that a deal is close appear wide of the mark.

His agent Agent Rodrigo de Silveira Da told Sky Tyne and Wear: "At the moment there is nothing official, we were in Europe last week and have some options.

"There is interest in England, Germany, Turkey and Russia so we are going to discuss all the opportunities."

Da Silveira says Douglas is determined to book his place in Holland's World Cup squad for next year, so they need to get the decision right about his new club.

"His dream is to play in the Dutch national team at the World Cup in Brazil," he said.

"We need to find a very good club. This is the reason we are waiting."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
