Newcastle sign striker Isak for club-record £63m

Newcastle United have completed the signing of striker Alexander Isak for a club-record £63m fee from Real Sociedad.

Newcastle are awaiting international clearance to have the Sweden international, who underwent a medical on Thursday, eligible for Sunday's trip to Wolves - live on Sky Sports.

Isak travelled to Tyneside by private jet, alongside his representatives, Newcastle sporting director Dan Ashworth and head of recruitment Steve Nickson on Thursday morning.

Ashworth and Nickson had spent the previous 48 hours in Spain agreeing a deal with Real Sociedad.

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe said at his Friday morning news conference he was keen to involve Isak as soon as possible with Callum Wilson - his other striking option - unavailable for a few weeks with a hamstring injury.
