Newcastle United have agreed a deal with a Chinese company who are set to sponsor the club’s new kit next season according to the Chronicle.
It is reported that the new sponsors are an online Chinese betting firm, thought to have agreed a big money deal with the Magpies.
The new sponsorship deal arrives after a successful business trip to China last month, which also involved discussions over a pre-season tour in China – however that is said to be unlikely this summer.
Puma will remain as one of Newcastle’s kit sponsors, however the Chinese firms logo will replace Wonga on the front of United’s new kit for the 2017/18 Premier League season.

Official details of the new sponsor are set to be released by the club next week.
