Newcastle sign Southampton’s Tino Livramento


Defender Tino Livramento from Southampton has been acquired by Newcastle for an unknown sum.

The two clubs reached an agreement on a rumored transfer fee that might reach £35 million, and the England Under-21 international has signed a five-year contract with the Magpies.

Livramento told the club’s official website: “I’m really excited to have signed for Newcastle United, and I’m looking forward to playing in front of the fans.

“I was here for the games over the weekend; even though they were friendlies, there were so many fans and they were still so loud so I can’t wait to see what it feels like to play in front of them in a Premier League or Champions League game.

“The way the manager plays football is really attractive and I feel like it suits me as a player. And with how well the team did last season, the trajectory that we’re on now, I’m just looking forward to being a part of that.”
