Newcastle Utd - Gate

Newcastle United have clinched a deal to sign Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Newcastle United have clinched their second major signing of the summer, unveiling Aleksandar Mitrovic, via their official website.

The striker arrives at the club with a big reputation despite being just 20 years-old, with The Express describing him as the Serbian Balotelli.

Mitrovic has been on the radar of Europe's top sides for several seasons, and impressed last year in the Champions League for Anderlecht, scoring against Arsenal at The Emirates.

He follows PSV winger Georginio Wijnaldum into the club, two exciting signings with real quality, who can help the team's efforts to begin rebuilding by finishing in the top 10 in the Premier League once again.

The former Partizan Belgrade forward is a full Serbian international, and scored 28 goals in 51 games for Anderlecht last season in all competitions.

Mitrovic has signed a five-year deal, with his transfer subject to a successful work permit application.
