Newcastle have up to eight first team players to bring in this summer and a lot to move out but it’s looking like we will get our third player through the door today with Jacob Murphy flying in from Dusseldorf, Germany to complete his move.
Terms and a medical are not expected to be a difficulty and he should be announced as a Newcastle player either later today or tomorrow.
We will then have signed Christian Atsu, Florian Lejeune and Jacob for around £25M in total.
22 year-old Norwich winger Jacob Murphy expected to sign today or tomorrow
But Newcastle have also moved out some fringe players already with nine players now left the club or out on loan next season.
Adam Armstrong is going on loan next season to newly promoted Championship club Bolton Wanderers.
So here’s how we stand at the moment with only an estimate of the transfer fees.
|Javier Manquillo||£4.5M||Atletico Madrid|
|Mikel Merino||Loan - season||Borussia Dortmund|
|Transfer Fees In||£34.5M|
|Vurnon Anita||Released||Aston Villa|
|Haris Vuckic||Released||FC Twente|
|Lubo Satka||Released||FC DAC 1904 |
|Kevin Mbabu||£1.0M||Young Boys|
|Matz Sels||Loan - season||Anderlecht|
|Adam Armstrong||Loan - season||Bolton|
|Lewis Gibson||£1.0M initially||Everton|
|Daryl Murphy||£2.0M||Nottingham Forest|
|Ivan Toney||Loan - season||Wigan Athletic|
|Siem de Jong||£4.0M||Ajax|
|Grant Hanley||£3.5M||Norwich City|
|Tim Krul||Loan - season||Brighton|
|Achraf Lazaar||Loan - season||Benevento|
|Transfer Fees Out||£22.5M|
It looks like we have a net spend so far this summer of £14M – still plenty of money to spend to get some good players through the door.
