Newcastle land Joselu in £5m deal

Newcastle United have signed striker Joselu from Stoke City in a £5million deal.

The striker has signed a three-year contract at St James’ Park after sealing his move on Wednesday.

“I feel very happy, because I have signed for a very big club,” Joselu told reporters. “I’m very happy to be part of this club, and so excited.

“I’m looking forward to getting to know my team-mates, the city, the training ground, the stadium and all the supporters.”

Joselu spent last season on loan at Deportivo La Coruna in LaLiga, scoring five goals in 20 appearances, just nine of which were starts.

That came after he also struggled for a regular spot at Stoke, making 22 Premier League outings – only 10 from Mark Hughes’ starting XI – after joining from Hannover for €8m in 2015, scoring four times.

The 27-year-old becomes Rafael Benitez’s sixth signing of the transfer window after the arrivals of Christian Atsu, Florian Lejeune, Jacob Murphy, Javier Manquillo and Mikel Merino.
