Newcastle fans have flooded to Twitter following the announcement by the club that we have secured a loan deal for 25-year-old Schalke 04 box-to-box midfielder Nabil Bentaleb.
There is also an option to buy for just €10M in the summer – so that seems like a great deal for us for such a talented player.
Fans seem very pleased with the deal.
There’s also breaking news that Steve Bruce wants Tottenham and England left-back Danny Rose on loan.
Nabil Bentaleb just a few minutes ago formally became a Newcastle United player; 6-month loan with a €10m option to buy from Schalke. #NUFC

#nufc great Nabil bentaleb played at #thfc before his level was great, I think its a great addition to this club ?he’s better than what we have? Not sure. Is it an area needs strengthening? I prefer a goalscorer, winger & a LB Also, may pave the way for sean longstaff’s exit Rex

Seems a good signing. Fair play Brucie. #NUFC

Smart signing a midfielder, I think Shelvey & Hayden are our strongest options, the Longstaffs are decent put don't think they effect games enough, a Bentaleb could be a shrewd piece of business. Sell Ki! Now desperate for two LB's #NUFC
