Newcastle have signed a multi-year contract the striker Aleksandar Mitrovic from Belgian side Anderlecht.
The 20-year old striker will arrive to the new team after accepted a deal of £13 million pounds. The deal finishes Chelsea’s and Manchester United’s hopes of acquiring the striker, having previously registered their interest in him.
Mitrovic scored 27 goals in his final season with Anderlecht in all competitions.
Upon signing for the Magpies, Mitrovic said: “I am so happy to have signed for Newcastle. I visited the stadium and it is amazing.
“I have played in a lot of impressive stadiums in my career but St. James’ Park is so big, I can’t wait to play my first game here. I also know about the famous players who have played for Newcastle United, like Alan Shearer, who is a hero of mine. I hope I can play like him for this Club. It will be an honour.”
