The 23-year-old Dutchman was linked with a move to St James’ Park in the summer and is thought to be keen to leave Borussia after failing to start a match all season.
De Jong scored 59 goals in 199 appearances for FC Twente before joining Borussia in summer 2012.
But after a solid first season with Die Fohlen, the forward has slipped behind Raffael and Patrick Herrmann in the pecking order.
