Eredevise outfit Feyenoord have rejected a €6 million (£4.7m) bid from Newcastle for their right-back Daryl Janmaat, according to reports in the Netherlands.

Sources suggest that the Magpies are unlikely to increase their offer for the Holland international who helped his fellow countrymen reach the semi final's of the World Cup where they were knocked out on penalties by Argentina.

Reports

It comes after initial reports that Feyenoord and the Toon had reached a provisional agreement for the transfer of Janmaat, identified as outgoing Mathieu Debuchy’s replacement.

According to this morning’s Journal, Newcastle will make a £5 million bid for Janmaat, whereas Dutch sources say the Eredivisie club will only consider selling at around £6 million.

Up the offer

If I was Alan Pardew, I would pay the £6 million Feyenoord want. From what I have seen in the World Cup he has been outstanding. The 24-year-old gives it 100% every game, willing to get involved with 50/50 challenges, always making over-lapping runs, he puts crosses in to the box; perfect.

The defender is also versatile and could be a key utility man for Newcastle. Although plying his trade at right-back, he has represented his clubs as a central defender and central midfielder. His passing ability, strength and a giant leap which he holds means he can play all of the different positions and could be a key figure for Newcastle next season if they are willing to pursue.
