BREAKING: NUFC set for signing number six as Spaniard is due for medical on Tyneside

Some breaking news to bring you this morning as it has been confirmed that Stoke striker Joselu is heading to the North-East today to undergo his medical and move to Newcastle United.

It was suggested last night by Guillem Balague that a £5m deal was ‘close’ and today by Miles Starforth from the Shields Gazette that he is now due on Tyneside to complete his move.

Joselu is likely to be seen as a replacement for Daryl Murphy, arriving as a 6ft 3′ forward whose hit form over pre-season with 4 goals in 2 games for Stoke.

The former Spain U-21 forward has been handed just 10 starts by Mark Hughes during his time at Stoje, scoring 4 goals in the process. He spent last season on loan in La Liga with Deportivo La Coruna, netting 6 times in 22 appearances.
