With eight ours to go on transfer deadline day, Newcastle United have revealed an early transfer.
The club putting out an official announcement that Ivan Toney has been sold to Peterborough United.
As usual, it is ‘undisclosed fee’ for the transfer deal.
Never under consideration by Rafa Benitez for his first team squad, after a series of loan deals Ivan Toney ends up on a permanent move to a League One side.
Having done really well at that level when on loan, and scored goals, Newcastle will have had plenty of offers.
Whilst it won’t be a massive fee of course, fans see it topping up the near £30m profit generated already this summer.
Yet Rafa Benitez having to scratch around for loans and/or bargains on deadline day.
Newcastle United official statement:
‘Ivan Toney has completed a permanent move to Peterborough United.
The 22-year-old moves to London Road for an undisclosed fee after three years with Newcastle United.
Toney made two Premier League appearances and two League Cup appearances for the Magpies after moving from Northampton Town in 2015, as well as appearing for the club’s Under-23 side.
The striker has also had six loan spells away from St. James’ Park with four different clubs, spending time with Barnsley (twice), Shrewsbury Town, Scunthorpe United (twice) and Wigan Athletic.
Everyone at Newcastle United wishes the player the best for the future.’
