Newcastle United have enjoyed a quiet deadline day after concluding their summer transfer business last week.
Yankuba Minteh was the first to arrive from Danish outfit Odense Boldklub for £7million before being loaned to Dutch champions Feyenoord for the 2023-24 campaign.
United’s recruitment team then turned its focus to immediate first-team additions and secured a marquee signing with the £52m arrival of Sandro Tonali from AC Milan.
Harvey Barnes was the next to arrive from Leicester City for £38m before being shortly followed by Tino Livramento from Southampton in a deal worth £30m plus add-ons.
Lewis Hall was confirmed as Newcastle’s fifth and final summer signing on a season-long loan, which includes an obligation to buy of an initial £28m next summer.

Remains the club’s undisputed No.1 with Martin Dubravka and Loris Karius in reserve. The arrival of Tino Livramento shows long-term thinking but 32-year-old Trippier, has shown no signs of slowing down. Newcastle identified the right side of centre-half as an area to bolster this summer but that has no bearing on Schar’s form, but rather the lack of depth in that position. Botman excelled during his first season as a Newcastle player and the hope is he remains at St James’ Park for years to come. Hall is still only 18-years-old, but you don’t sign him not to play him, right? For as good as Dan Burn has been, Newcastle miss an out-and-out option. The Brazilian has come under some criticism for his start to the season but it won’t be long before Guimaraes gets back to his best. His debut against Aston Villa showed exactly what the Italian can bring. Joelinton’s transformation story over the last 18 months speaks for itself. When he isn’t there, Newcastle miss his aggression and physical presence. Gordon has started the season on the left wing but £38m signing Harvey Barnes can’t play the substitue role forever. Gordon himself was bought for £45m, putting him ahead of Miguel Almiron. Barnes already looks like a player who will score goals - and plenty of them - in this Newcastle team after scoring on his debut v Aston Villa. It’s never an easy choice between Isak and Callum Wilson but the £60m Swede, on his day, brings the X-Factor.
