Club legend thinks Newcastle United's new signing will be a decent addition

Share

The Magpies are close to announcing the signing of the Stoke striker, in a transfer that will cost them in the region of £5m.

The Potteries club are understood to be closing in on the loan signing of Jese Rodriguez from Paris Saint-Germain, which would open up the way for Joselu to move to Tyneside. "I'm very happy to be part of this club, and so excited", the 27-year-old told the club's official website.

After struggling at Stoke, Joselu moved to Deportivo La Coruna on loan, and numerous club's fans didn't want him from day one.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez is targeting FIVE new signings before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.

The Spanish coach added that Joselu "obviously" has experience in English soccer and the EPL.

After Newcastle's woeful return to life in the Premier League, losing 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur, Rafael Benitez will be looking to bolster his lacklustre attacking options, with a supporting cast required to partner Dwight Gayle and Aleksandar Mitrovic. We think if we can exploit his full potential he will be a good signing for us.

The article also mentioned other Chinese companies as potential suitors, but said it was unclear which ones would follow through. FCA chief executive Sergio Marchionne said there would be the "synergies and economies of scale" in joining the alliance .

Joselu's passing abilities leave little to be desired, completing less than 63% of his passes, which would have been worst on last year's Newcastle squad except for the three goalkeepers and Daryl Murphy.

"He knows and accepts the challenge we've given him at Newcastle United and he's keen to come and fight for a position in the team".

Newcastle scored just 44 goals the last time they were in the Premier League, with an 18th place finish seeing them relegated in the 2015/16 season, despite the appointment of Benitez in March 2016.
