Our article, Click Here, highlighted the fact that as well as the fact the transfer window closes earlier this season, the two clubs involved in the possible deal were bickering over the price.

Thankfully, some 24-hours after, the deal now looks set to go ahead.

Our associates at Sky Sports, are reporting that the two clubs, after several days of talks, are set to conclude a deal with our source implying that the two clubs have agreed on a transfer fee of £22 million for the 23-year-old which could rise to £27 million depending on add-ons.

Rafael Benitez, speaking to the media after Newcastle had played FC Porto in a friendly fixture, had this to say:

It appears to us, the club have gotten a decent price for the Serbian striker, now let’s hope the cash is spent wisely.

Has anyone any suggestions as to who they’d like to see the money spent on?
