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?

Here are some typical comments with the Geordie fans in high spirits.

    Just hope that the clincher for him was the commitment from Rafa that he’s staying and will build the club to new heights under new ownership.
