Newcastle United and Wor Flags have unveiled a flag dedicated to new signing Sandro Tonali.

Sandro Tonali once said he dreamed of having his own AC Milan flag. If he held such dream as a Newcastle United player, then that has already become a reality.

After being confirmed as Newcastle’s first major summer signing on Monday, Tonali touched down on Tyneside for the first time 48 hours later to complete transfer formalities.

Tonali flew direct from Milan, where he spent the last three years playing for his boyhood heroes, the Rossoneri, into Newcastle’s private airport to the north of the city at around 4pm on Wednesday.

He was soon taken around the area, stopping off in Darras Hall where he was spotted by some eagle-eyed fans, before heading to the club’s newly-refurbished Benton training base.

Back to his hotel for a good night’s sleep, Tonali got a first look at St James’ Park on Thursday morning, where he posed for photos and sat down with Newcastle’s media team to record his eagerly-awaited first interview.

And we suspect he will have been pleasantly surprised when he was greeted by his own personalised Italian-themed flag that says “Forza Tonali”

“Big Sandro, there. Posing in front of the artwork I did of him for the flags,” said Dan from Wor Flags. “24 hour turnaround on that to try and sneak it into the background of his photos, but the club saw it and asked to use it!

“Can’t wait for you to see it at SJP on a match day. #ForzaTonali #NUFC”.

And fellow Newcastle fans have already voiced their approval.“Belter”, replied numerous supporters, while another said: This is class!!”
