Tino Livrameno completes Newcastle medical ahead of £32m move from Southampton

Newcastle expected to make Tino Livramento their third major signing of the summer following the arrivals of Sandro Tonali from AC Milan for £55m and Harvey Barnes from Leicester for £39m; Livramento passes his Newcastle medical ahead of completing the move

Newcastle are set to add Tino Livramento to their ranks after the Southampton defender completed a medical ahead of a £32m move.

The 20-year-old was in the stands at St James' Park as Newcastle rounded off their pre-season preparations with a comfortable win against Villarreal on Sunday.

The full-back will become Eddie Howe's third summer signing, following Sandro Tonali and Harvey Barnes.

Asked if he could confirm reports at a news conference on Friday, Howe said: "I'm not, I'm slightly in the dark on that unfortunately. Let's wait and see what happens in the next couple of days but, certainly, I like the player."

Last week we reported Southampton were not offering any discounts on their players despite relegation to the Premier League.

Saints have stood firm on their valuations, selling Mohamed Salisu to Monaco for £17.2m, and rejecting further offers for James Ward-Prowse and Romeo Lavia from West Ham and Liverpool respectively.

Southampton rejected a bid of £30m from Newcastle for Livramento several weeks ago.

Livramento is set to become another astute signing by Newcastle as they add strength in depth to Eddie Howe's squad ahead of the new season.

Livramento, 20, signed for Southampton from Chelsea in the summer of 2021 for £5m.

An ACL injury suffered in April 2022 prematurely ended what had been an impressive breakout season and consigned the England U21 international to more than a year out on the sidelines.

Livramento returned to action 392 days later against Brighton at the Amex - the same venue he picked up the injury - off the bench as one of two substitute appearances he made last season.
