NUFC set to announce summer signing number two after midfielder completes medical

As confirmed in the last few moments by the Chronicle’s Lee Ryder, Newcastle look set to announce the free agent signing of former Swansea midfielder Ki Sung-Yeung – with the player having already undergone his medical.

The South-Korea international left Swansea in May – meaning he’s now available on a free – and he looks set to become our second signing of the summer after Martin Dubravka.

The Chronicle state that the 29-year-old held talks with the midfielder after South Korea’s World Cup exit was confirmed after two defeats in their opening two games.

So, it sounds like he’s all set to sign – providing the result of his medical come back fine.

If he arrives as a replacement for Mikel Merino then I’m a little concerned, however you’d like to think he’ll be brought in the replace the likes of Jack Colback and Henri Saivet.

Good signing?!

One thought on “NUFC set to announce summer signing number two after midfielder completes medical

  1. Very poor signing. Free yes, but not good enough quality for the Premier League. Didn’t do much at Swansea. Benitez is going after some uninspiring players. Surely he can do better ? At this rate, Newcastle will be certainties for the drop this season. And they will deserve it, unfortunately.
