Flash Report: Newcastle reaches agreement with Lille, Sven Botman to become a Magpie

Milan who?

The news are fresh and the hype is through the roof, so we couldn’t wait to have a full post ready and instead opted for debuted what we’re calling “Flash Reporting” here at Coming Home Newcastle.

And for the first headline: Sven Botman will be a Newcastle United player in the next few hours/days after NUFC and Lille have agreed on a fee between them (around €37M plus add-ons) and the Magpies and the player have a deal (nearly) in place.

Fabri Romano confirmed it just a couple of hours ago, and there are now echoes reverberating all around the sphere.

Seriously. Newcastle United. Beating AC Milan. For a wunderkind and upcoming football legend in the Dutch center-back Sven Botman.

It is real, and it is going down in Tyneside. We’ll keep updating you here at CHU as new information drops because we’ve now entered an era as Toon fans where we don’t have to worry about making this stuff up. Man, oh, man.

Howay the freaking Lads!
