Cost of Everton & Newcastle deal confirmed, player will complete move today

According to reports from The Chronicle, Newcastle United will pay Everton a £1million fee to sign Brendan Galloway on a season-long loan.

The Toffees signed the defender from MK Dons back in summer 2014 and he’s gone on to make 21 appearances across all competitions, including 17 outings in the Premier League.

But the 20-year-old, who can operate as a left-back or a centre-half, is set to spend the season on loan at St. James’ Park as Rafa Benitez looks to revolutionise the Magpies’ porous backline.

Mirror Football reported on Tuesday that the home-grown starlet’s move to Tyneside would likely be wrapped up before the end of the week.

But The Chronicle believe it will be completed today, meaning Galloway could make his first start for Newcastle against Huddersfield on Saturday – replacing Paul Dummett at No.3.

And it’s further added that Newcastle are paying a £1million loan fee to have Galloway at their disposal for next season.
