Following the arrivals of Jack Colback and Ayoze Perez, Newcastle United yesterday confirmed Siem De Jong as their third summer signing. The 25 year old agreed terms on a six year deal and has moved from Ajax for a reported fee of £6 million.
Capable of playing as a playmaker or an outright striker, many view the signing of the Dutchman as the long-awaited replacement for Yohan Cabaye. But with Papiss Cisse the only other senior forward currently contracted to the club, more attacking reinforcements are desperately required at St James’ Park.
After the disappointments of the last few transfer windows, Newcastle fans aren’t anticipating many further arrivals at their club this summer. But following such a dismal run of form in 2014, Mike Ashley may finally be ready to put his hand in his pocket or delve into the club’s recent impressive profits.
Bearing this in mind, here are SIX signings to follow De Jong to Newcastle this summer.
