Sky Sports confirm NUFC are close to another sale – Move expected to go through ‘later today’

According to Sky Sports, Newcastle United goalkeeper Matz Sels is now on the verge of completing a move to France, with him expected to seal a £3.5m move to Strasbourg ‘later today’.

The Belgian had looked like he would return to Anderlecht on a permanent deal earlier in the summer, however it looks like he’s now set for a move to Ligue 1 with newly promoted side Strasbourg.

Considering a fee of £2m had been mentioned when in talks with Anderlecht, £3.5m seems like a decent fee for Newcastle – especially when we’ve paid just £500,000 more to confirm the signing of Martin Dubravka earlier this summer!

Here’s what Sky have had to say on the deal, confirming that he’s now in France and could even make the move official later today:

‘Newcastle goalkeeper Matz Sels is in France to finalise a £3.5m move to Ligue 1 club Strasbourg, according to Sky sources.

‘The Belgian international could complete his move to the newly-promoted French side on Wednesday.’

A good move for all parties and a decent fee recouped by us in the circumstances.

Let’s hope this – along with the money from the Chancel Mbemba sale – is now reinvested.
