Newcastle 'agree £40m deal' as French wonderkid set to become first summer signing


However, the striker did open the door for a move to the Magpies this summer, adding: “I consider myself ready for anything. Whether that is staying here, or taking up a challenge that everyone agrees with [elsewhere].”

While Ekitike is seemingly now poised to become Newcastle’s first summer signing, it’s unlikely he’ll be the only new face through the door at St James’ Park, as the club prepare for their first summer transfer under their mega-rich owners. The Magpies were taken over by a Saudi-backed consortium back in a £305million deal last October and splashed the cash to ensure their top-flight survival back in January.

As well as Ekitike, Newcastle have also been linked with Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Manchester United shot-stopper Dean Henderson and Lille defender Sven Botman.
