Newcastle have announced that the deal to take Aleksandar Mitrovic to Fulham has been completed.
Sky Sports have reported the deal is worth £22M initially with £5M in potential additional add-ons and that’s a good deal for Newcastle.
Aleksandar Mitrovic joins Fulham – for £22M
This is what the club have announced on their website:
The forward joins Slavisa Jokanovi?’s side for an undisclosed free, bringing an end to his three-year spell at St. James’ Park.
Twenty-three-year-old Mitrovi?csigned for Newcastle United from Belgian outfit Anderlecht in July 2015, going on to make a total of 72 appearances for the Magpies, scoring 17 times.
The Serbia international spent a spell on loan at Craven Cottage during the second half of last season, making 17 appearances and scoring 12 times as Fulham won promotion from the Championship with a 1-0 win over Aston Villa in the play-off final at Wembley.
The club wishes him well for the future.
With the deal having been closed the big question now is whether Mike Ashley will loosen the purse strings a bit to allow Rafa to bring in more players before the deadline of August 9th at 5:00pm when the transfer window slams shut.
