The first photo of Aleksandar Mitrovic in Newcastle United colours was circulated (see below) last night.

Sky Sports’ north east man Keith Downie reported that they understood the official confirmation of the striker’s signing is expected to be announced today.

As we await that news, have a look at this video footage of Mitrovic in action – the goals and skills that will be appearing for Newcastle this coming season.

(The photo is said to have been taken at The Hilton on the Gateshead side of the Tyne and the first record we can find of it appearing was via the Twitter account of TheOriginalkr.)


The striker scored 26 goals (all competitions) last season for Anderlecht and flew into Newcastle Airport on Sunday afternoon.

The 20 year old striker is widely reported to be due to be joined at St James Park by teammate Chancel Mbemba very shortly.
