Lukaku to Newcastle as good as done: Medical today, announcement imminent

Jordan Lukaku, the younger brother of Manchester United Romelu Lukaku is on the verge of joining Newcastle United, albeit on a loan spell until the end of the season, per reports.

Lukaku joined Lazio in the summer of 2016 from Oostende and he was a regular for this side until this season. The left full back has managed only seven appearances in the Serie A for his club this term, six of them are from the bench.

The 24-year-old is now seeking to further his career away from the Serie A and the Magpies are ready to give him an escape route. According to France Football, Newcastle United will take him on loan this month but they will have to pay Lazio a transfer fee of €22 million (£19m) in the summer for a permanent deal.

The star missed training on Thursday, he is due to arrive England today for medical ahead of the deal confirmation.

Newcastle United are sitting in 17th place on the Premier League log, they are looking to strengthen their squad to avoid relegation fight.

We hope to see the new Lukaku grace the Premier League.
