Newcastle Summer Transfers To Date – One Sold, Four Released – One Player Signed

We will be keeping tabs on the transfers into and out of the club again this summer and with the announcement yesterday of Newcastle’s retained list, we have now let five first team players leave, including Lubo Satka.

Newcastle have so far sold one player –  Florian Thauvin to Marseille for £10M – but don’t be surprised if the French club now sell Florian to an Italian club for a quick profit on the Frenchman, who was a dud on Tyneside.

Florian back in his native France has played extremely well on loan at Marseille last season scoring 15 goals in 43 games – and there seems to be continued interest in him from Italian clubs with the latest news being that Roma are keen to sign him.

£10M was the fee agreed at the start of his loan and Marseille have taken up that option to buy him which is now a bargain price for the French club.

Newcastle have brought in Christian Atsu from Chelsea after his successful loan sell and we paid £6.2M for him.

So far we are in the black by about £3.8M with one player coming in and five players leaving.
