Newcastle are awaiting a response from FC Twente after tabling a bid for Brazil-born defender Douglas.

Press Association Sport understands that the Magpies submitted a formal offer amounting to more than four million Euros on Tuesday night for the 24-year-old and are now waiting to hear back.

However, it is also understood that Twente have placed a higher - if not much higher - valuation on the player, who is being courted by a series of other clubs, thought to include Fulham and West Ham.
