Pardew urges De Jong to start scoring

Alan Pardew has said that Luke de Jong’s form will have to improve if he is to secure a permanent move to Newcastle United in the summer, the Telegraph understands.

The Dutch international moved to St James’ Park on loan from Borussia Monchengladbach in January, and has failed to score in his eight Premier League matches so far.

Pardew, who will be able to attend his side’s match at Southampton on Saturday after being banned from the stadium for the last three games, is a big admirer of the 23 year old but has suggested that unless he starts scoring, he will not be at the club beyond his loan spell.

De Jong barely featured for Monchengladbach during the first half of this season, after managing just six goals in his first season in the Bundesliga though in his native Netherlands, he was far more prolific.

Only Bas Dost of Heerenveen managed more than De Jong’s tally of 23 goals during the 2011/12 campaign when he was at FC Twente.
