Newcastle have stepped up their interest of Erik Pieters, with Alan Pardew watching the full-back in action against ADO Den Haag on Sunday, according to Sky Sports.

Pieters has starred for PSV Eindhoven since the 23-year-old signed for the French outfit in 2008, and as a result, has attracted interest from numerous European clubs, particularly over the last summer.


But Newcastle look to be front runners to land Peters, and with the transfer window entering into the last week, Pardew wants the board to put forward a £6 million bid and fill the gap that Jose Enrique left when he departed for Liverpool.

Pieters has been dealing with speculation over a move to Newcastle all summer, but the Dutchman insisted yesterday that he would not be disappointed if a move to St James’ Park fell through.

"The Premier League is a very good league to play in," Pieters said.

"I'm open to this step, it seems a great challenge. But if it fails, I am not disappointed.

"My agent must report to me when it is really concrete. I have not heard yet, so I wait."

Newcastle are on the lookout for a striker as well as a left-back, and will no doubt be working overtime to secure deals as quickly as possible before the club misses their chance.
