"Tim (Krul) and Vurnon (Anita) kept asking me over the last couple of years 'Are you coming?' and I'm saying maybe; but this year

to take the next step and Newcastle is the club that wanted me the most.
"Luuk said it is a great atmosphere and nice stadium and Newcastle breathes football. He said it is all about football here and
the fans really love it. It didn't go so well for him and the team in the last half of the season so he hopes he can prove himself
somewhere else and come back one day and prove his true potential."

He added: "The main part of my play is to see the space in the box and come as a second striker and score goals, also to get in
some crosses. My best position is just behind the striker. Hopefully I can play in that position here and do the same as I did for
Ajax and improve both the team and myself."
