Aleksandar Mitrovic – All The Facts Plus Video Of His Goals


We published this article initially a week yesterday, when it looked like Newcastle would sign both Wijnaldum and Mitrovic – but we only signed the Dutch midfielder.

Now Mitrovic is reported by the Belgium press to be on his way to Newcastle and always assuming he passes his medical – he will become a Newcastle player today.

We also have a video showing his goals from last season.

    Looks like may have two more in then, if it happens that’s three very good signings. Does the credit go to McLaren or charnley?
    Another two out three on top of that with a few players offloaded would be a great window.

    The way this one has dragged on he’ll probably fail the medical.

    If we get Mitrovic and then don’t go in for Austin – looks more like the Austin odds being pulled was Newcastle forcing the hand of Mitrovic

    We understand the fee for Aleksandar Mitrovi? to be close to £13m, with the Serb now just needing to pass his Newcastle medical.

    Don’t know if we need Austin if Mitrovic signs – would rather spend the money on a top defender/centre half

    Wait, let me get this straight.

    Wijnaldum: £15m
    Mitrovic: £13m
    Austin: £15m (?)

    Total: £43m

    And it looks like we might be going after Mbemba too?

    Does anybody else reckon Ashley is finally starting to figure out how to run a football club?

    If Mitrovic does come in then I presume a deal for Austin will wait until January and see if QPR get more than £5M.

    The only thing fantastic about mitrovic is that he is not allergic to aerial balls unlike the other strikers. I wish we could get a striker who scores outside the box occasionally.

    Glad to see we are going for an Eastern European player with something of a reputation already and a Senior International. IMO another striker is less important than two defenders especially now Good has had a recurrence of his injury. Someone like Jonny Evans would be good as he is already a PL player and an other youngish International would be ideal. It looks like Schteve may look to the existing young midfielders to cover the full backs, I hope in order to concentrate the efforts and spending on the transfers we need to be able to challenge in both the League and Cups.

    Cabella out injured 6-8weeks supposedly torn his quads,surely we need to buy a winger to replace him, considering most of Mitrovic’s goals are from crosses!

    New season hasn’t started yet and we are already gonna miss Cabella and Curtis Good
