Newcastle United has agreed to pay £40 million for Southampton’s Tino Livramento.
Livramento missed most of last season because of an injury to his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). BBC Radio Solent says that Newcastle United and Southampton have agreed on a deal for Southampton right back Tino Livramento that is worth £40 million with add-ons.
The 20-year-old player moved from Chelsea to the south-coast club for £5m in 2021.
Last season, Southampton was kicked out of the Premier League. This is why Livramento is leaving.
After he hurt his anterior cruciate ligament in April 2022, the England Under-21 back only played in two games last season.
In Southampton’s last two games of the season, against Brighton and Liverpool, he came on as a replacement.
During the 2021-22 season, Livramento played 32 games, 28 of which were in the Premier League.
Newcastle signed Sandro Tonali, a defender from Italy, and Harvey Barnes, a winger from England, this summer as the Tyneside club looks to improve on last season’s fourth-place finish.
The first game of the new Premier League season for Eddie Howe’s team is at home against Aston Villa on August 12.
