CONFIRMED: Aleksandar Mitrovic and Jack Colback seal last minute moves to Championship clubs

Confirmation of two senior exits at NUFC following the closure of the transfer window, with it being confirmed that Aleksandar Mitrovic has joined Fulham and Jack Colback has completed a move to Nottingham Forest – with both deals being on loans until the end of the season.

Starting with Mitrovic, the Serbian had been pictured arriving in Brussels to complete a move back to Belgian giants Anderlecht last night, however that move was called off at the last minute – with flying into London soon after to complete a move to Championship promotion contenders Fulham instead.

With just 4 Championship goals in 25 appearances last season, it’ll be interesting to see how he gets on during their promotion push!

Then to NUFC outcast Jack Colback who completes a loan move to fellow Championship side Nottingham Forest.

It had been suggested earlier in the day yesterday that he’d turned down a move to Hull, however Colback has now ended a nightmare spell on Tyneside by joining Aitor Karanka’s Forest until the end of the season.

After training with the reserves, failing to make a matchday squad all season and being omitted from the squad photo, it’s fair to say a move for the midfielder made sense for all parties!
