Isak completes Newcastle medical ahead of club-record £58m move

Alexander Isak has completed a medical at Newcastle ahead of his £58m move from Real Sociedad.

Isak is yet to finalise personal terms with Eddie Howe's side but no problems are expected ahead of what would be a club-record deal for Newcastle, eclipsing the £40m they paid Hoffenheim for Joelinton in 2019 and Lyon for Bruno Guimaraes in January.

Dan Ashworth, Newcastle's sporting director, and Steve Nickson, the club's head of recruitment, had been in Spain to work on a deal that has moved at pace.

Isak has been at Real Sociedad since the summer of 2019, when he arrived from Borussia Dortmund, and has scored 44 goals in 132 appearances - including one in the 4-1 La Liga defeat to Barcelona on Sunday.

The 22-year-old also has nine goals in 37 caps for Sweden, the first of which came when he was just 17 and made him his country's youngest goalscorer.
