DONE DEAL: Newcastle confirm deal in principle for Lille defender Botman
Sven Botman has completed his £35m transfer from Lille to Newcastle United.
The Dutch defender completed his medical on Tyneside on Tuesday before signing a five-year deal with the Premier League club.
AC Milan were extremely keen on Botman, but Newcastle have ultimately got the deal done.
A statement from the club read: "Newcastle United have agreed a deal in principle with LOSC Lille to sign Dutch defender Sven Botman for an undisclosed fee, holding off competition from a host of European sides to secure the highly-rated centre-back.
"Botman has completed his medical on Tyneside and agreed the terms of a five-year contract. The formalities of the transfer are set to be concluded this week, following which the 22-year-old will officially become a Newcastle United player."
