Sky Sports have just reported they think the deal that will take Christian Atsu to Newcastle on loan from Chelsea with an option to buy is very close given Atsu passes his medical today.
He is reported to be undergoing his medical at the club at the moment.
And the Chronicle chief sport reporter Lee Ryder has just tweeted he thinks it’s now a done deal.

All being well we should have an announcement on this from Newcastle sometime today.
24 year-old Atsu looks a very good player and has terrific pace and usually plays on the right wing.
