Newcastle splashes out on striker Joelinton

Bongarts

The Brazilian forward has signed a six-year deal at St James' Park and is said to have cost in the region of £40million (€44.6m) and £47.6m (€53m).

The transfer surpasses the £20.5m Newcastle spent to secure Miguel Almiron earlier this year, that fee having finally topped its long-standing record figure of £16.5m, paid for Michael Owen in 2005.
