The thought of Sandro Tonali in a Newcastle United shirt has got fans’ mouths watering and the sight of the Tynemouth Surf Cafe’s new burger will only add to that.

Newcastle United fans are all celebrating the arrival of Sandro Tonali in their own way and the Tynemouth Surf Cafe has gone the extra mile by launching a limited edition burger on its menu in honour of the Italian.

Tonali was announced as a Magpies player on Monday and touched down on Tyneside earlier this week after finishing international duty with the Italy Under-23 set-up. On Thursday, the star visited St James' Park for the first time as he begins to settle down in the North East.

There's a real buzz about the 23-year-old's signing after Newcastle United shelled out £52 million to secure the midfielder's services.

Tonali comes with a Champions League pedigree thanks to his time with Italian giants AC Milan and will bolster Eddie Howe's midfield ahead of the side's return to European football next season.

To mark the moment, the Tynemouth Surf Cafe has made an addition to its menu by creating The Toonali, a burger inspired by the player.

The popular joint sits just opposite Tynemouth Park and overlooks Long Sands Beach. The cafe is known to be especially busy in summer as Geordies head to the coast to soak up some sun and enjoy some great grub.

Describing The Toonali burger online, the Tynemouth Surf Cafe said: "Double beef smashed patty seasoned the Brack Burger way with a pizza sauce, shredded lettuce & sliced tomato base topped with mozzarella cheese & Pesto alla Genovese in a toasted brioche bun. A creation that completely melts in your mouth."

The burger is available for one week only and can also be ordered on Uber Eats while stocks last.

Reacting to the announcement online, viewers said that The Toonali looked 'yummy already' and 'looks gorgeous'. One Twitter user said: "Oh my days!!! Take my money!"

Another wrote: "Stop flirting with me that looks UNREAL."

Upon signing for Newcastle United, Sandro Tonali said: "First of all, I want to thank Newcastle United because they are giving me a huge opportunity for my career.

"I want to repay the trust on the pitch, giving it my all, as I always have. I'm really excited about playing at St. James' Park, I can't wait to feel the warmth of the fans."

Newcastle United head coach, Eddie Howe, added: "I'm delighted to welcome Sandro to Newcastle United. He is an exceptional talent and has the mentality, physicality and technical attributes to be a great fit for us.

"At 23, Sandro already has important experience as a key player in one of Europe's top leagues and in the Champions League, as well as playing for his country.

"But he also has the opportunity and potential to grow and evolve with us, and I'm excited to add him to our squad as we approach the exciting season ahead."
