Newcastle Fans Over The Moon With Mikel Merino Signing – A Real Bargain Buy

It was excellent news that we have signed Mikel Merino today from Borussia Dortmund on a permanent deal and the fee is said to be around 6.5M.

Newcastle signed him as soon as we could one he had played a certain number of games so the loan fee must be minimal for the 10 weeks he was on loan, and the fee is low given how good the 21-year-old is.

Mikel gave a press conference before Rafa’s this afternoon, and he seems comfortable answering questions in what is very good English from the young Spaniard.

Mikel is already a favorite with the Newcastle fans because the lad is so modest and also so determined to become the best player he can under Rafa Benitez’ guidance.

It was not a good summer in the transfer market for us, but now we have Mikel tied up permanently – it’s looking better all the time.

Hopefully, Mikel can help us beat the Saints on Sunday at St. Mary’s – maybe with his first ever goal for the club?
