Tino Livramento becomes Newcastle United’s fourth summer signing.

Newcastle United have completed the signing of Tino Livramento from Southampton for an undisclosed fee.

The England under-21s international missed the Saints’ Championship opener at Sheffield Wednesday on Friday night after a reported £30million plus add-ons fee was agreed between the two clubs.

Livramento travelled to the North East over the weekend to finalise his switch and was in attendance at St James’ Park for both of United’s Sela Cup matches against Fiorentina and Villarreal.

The 20-year-old has put pen to paper on a five-year contract as the Magpies take their summer spending total to around £126million having also recruited Yankuba Minteh, Sandro Tonali and Harvey Barnes.

Livramento said: “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.

“And to be able to learn from Kieran Trippier is another big thing for me; hopefully he teaches me how to become a better player and a better full-back.”

After coming through the academy at Chelsea, Livramento moved to Southampton in the summer of 2021 for just £4m. The Blues, however, inserted a hefty sell-on clause, which could see them net around £14m from the transfer.

Livramento has made just 30 Premier League appearances having only recently recovered from an ACL injury that kept him sidelined for 12 months.

For that reason, the fee may raise a few eyebrows but as previously reported by NewcastleWorld, Magpies sporting director Dan Ashworth is convinced Livramento is a future England star, as too is Eddie Howe.

Howe said: “Tino is a very talented young player with an exciting future ahead of him so we are delighted to sign him.

“At 20, he already has lots of attributes that I admire but he also has the potential and drive to really grow with this team. I’m looking forward to working with him and to seeing him develop in a Newcastle shirt.”
