Newcastle United have £31.8m transfer ‘all agreed’ ahead of medical
Newcastle United have all-but completed the signing of Lille star Sven Botman.
The Magpies have been chasing a new centre-back for some time, and Botman was a target back in January.
Back then, they could not get the deal done, with the defender seemingly not keen on a move to St James’ Park.
But Newcastle have now managed to strike a deal as they continue to rack up their spending bill under their new owners.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Magpies are spending as much as £31.8million to secure Botman, who is one of the brightest young centre-backs in Europe, still only 22.
The deal has not been announced yet, but it’s claimed a medical has already been booked, and a deal is likely to be completed next week.
Concerningly, things are not quite so straightforward for Huge Ekitike, whose arrival is described as ‘complicated’.
