London - Dutch international forward Siem de Jong has joined
PSV Eindhoven on a season-long loan from Newcastle United, the English
second-tier club announced on Monday.
De Jong, 27, joined Newcastle from Ajax two years ago, but
injuries have prevented him from establishing himself at St James' Park.
He has made just seven starts during that time, scoring
twice in all competitions, and is currently recovering from a hamstring injury
sustained during pre-season.
