Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has revealed more details about the transfer, with the Serie A club to receive 10 per cent of any future transfer fee if Newcastle decide to sell the player.

The Magpies' valuation of the player has already been made clear after Tonali signed an initial five-year deal with the Premier League club on Monday. Romano has claimed his contract runs for six years, suggesting there is the option of a 12-month extension in his contract.

“First of all, I want to thank Newcastle United because they are giving me a huge opportunity for my career,” said Tonali after his arrival was confirmed.

“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’s 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.”

AC Milan stated: “AC Milan announces that it has definitively sold the registration rights of the player Sandro Tonali to Newcastle United. The Club thanks the midfielder for the three splendid years spent together and wishes him the best personal and professional satisfaction.”
