DONE DEAL? Newcastle bid accepted by Lille for Botman
Newcastle United have struck terms with Lille over a fee for Sven Botman.
The Magpies tried to sign the 22-year-old in January and faced competition from AC Milan.
Landing the centre-back for a fee believed to be about £30m means manager Eddie Howe has recruited right across his defence since taking charge last November.
In January he signed England full-back Kieran Trippier and Brighton centre-back Dan Burn.
Left-back Matt Targett also arrived on loan from Aston Villa, with the move subsequently made permanent.
England goalkeeper Nick Pope joined Newcastle from Burnley earlier this week.
