Alexander Isak has left Newcastle United’s training ground after completing the first stage of his club record move.
The Sweden international arrived at the club’s Benton training base earlier this afternoon after flying in from San Sebastian.
The Magpies agreed a £58million deal with Real Sociedad in the build-up to last night’s second round Carabao Cup win against Tranmere Rovers.
Sporting director Dan Ashworth and head of recruitment Steve Nickson were in the Basque Country to thrash out negotiations.
Isak is on Tyneside to complete medical tests and other formalities ahead of officially becoming a Newcastle United player.
Previously, a deal for Isak looked out of reach due to the figures involved, however United have reached a compromise with Sociedad.
The fee will smash the club’s previous transfer record. That was Joelinton’s £40million arrival from Hoffenheim in 2019.
