Newcastle United have officially completed the signing of Emil Krafth, a defender who arrives from Ligue 1 side Amines and signs an initial four-year-contract at St. James’ Park with the Magpies.
The 25-year-old right-back has had quite the ride in his colourful career. He only joined the French team last season on loan before making that move permanent earlier in the summer.
But that move didn’t last long as he has now arrived in the Premier League.
Krafth quickly took to Instagram after completing the switch to share the first snaps in his new colours.
