Newcastle United close to signing Stoke striker Joselu

Newcastle United will reportedly announce the signing of £5m Stoke City forward Joselu on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old, who has signed a three-year deal with the Magpies, becomes Rafa Benitez's sixth signing of the summer and will bolster Newcastle's attacking options after moves for Arsenal's Lucas Perez and former Malaga striker Sandro Ramirez were thwarted by a salary structure which sees the club unwilling to offer more than £70,000-a-week.

The Newcastle boss and club owner Mike Ashley have each had their say on transfers in recent days to leave fans fearing a schism has developed, although with more than two weeks of the transfer window remaining, there is still room for manoeuvre.

In his first season at Stoke, the forward managed just four goals and in the following campaign he was sent out on loan to Deportivo La Coruna, where he found the back of the net four times in 20 appearances.

Newcastle hope to complete their move for Stoke striker Joselu on Tuesday after making significant progress.

Former Spain Under-21 worldwide Joselu, who made two appearances for Real Madrid, scored four goals in 27 appearances in his only season in the Premier League for Stoke.

Benitez added: "Obviously he has experience of English football and the Premier League".

Joselu admitted Benítez was another big factor in why he joined the club, saying: "It's good for me that the manager is also from Spain". According to the Chronicle, Joselu has done the first part of his medical at the north east club and now there is only paperwork to be completed before.

"We think if we can exploit his full potential he will be a good signing for us".

Huddersfield Town could face a Newcastle United side buoyed by a new signing on Super Sunday this weekend.
