If Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson wasn’t enough, even more good news on the NUFC transfer front has emerged late on Sunday night, this time from The Athletic’s David Ornstein.
He reports that Newcastle have now reached a ‘total agreement’ with Norwich City over the signing of highly-rated left-back Jamal Lewis.
Although it was initially reported by Sky Sports that we’d agreed a fee of £13.5m, it’s Ornstein’s understanding that we’ll pay £15m PLUS potential add-ons for the talented 22-year-old.
The Athletic reporter also expects his medical to be either Monday or Tuesday – although it’s expected to be the latter unless Northern Ireland allow him to leave before their clash with Norway on Monday night:
This means up to THREE medicals now look set to take place on Tyneside over the next 48 hours or so, with Sky Sports confirming that BOTH Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser will complete the formalities of their moves to St James’ Park on Monday.
As for Lewis, it says a lot about his potential and current ability that Liverpool made an £11m bid for him earlier this summer, with him one of Norwich’s standout players during their relegation season in 2019/20.
Whisper it quietly, but this may prove to be an exciting summer for Newcastle fans after all!
