Crystal Palace are interested in signing Newcastle flop Siem de Jong, according to reports.

De Jong, who signed for the Magpies in 2014, spent last season on loan at PSV.

His Newcastle career has been plagued by injuries, but Eagles boss Frank de Boer is keen on a reunion with the striker.

The pair worked together at Ajax for four years, winning four successive Eredivisie titles.

Despite returning to Newcastle in the summer, De Jong is not in manager Rafa Benitez’s first-team plans. He is behind Dwight Gayle and Aleksandar Mitrovic in the pecking order.

The Dutch international would play second fiddle to Christian Benteke at Selhurst Park, but could rediscover the form he showed under De Boer in Holland.
