Whilst Eddie Howe has been strengthening the first team further, with Sven Botman now set to join Matt Targett and Nick Pope as summer signings.
The club has also been making moves across all parts of Newcastle United, with the younger age groups under first team level to be strengthened by the likes of Charlie McArthur arriving from Kilmarnock, Alex Murphy from Galway United and now 18 year old Jordan Hackett-Valton from Tottenham.
One of the many motivations for Newcastle United bringing Sporting Director Dan Aashworth in, was his experience and contacts when it comes to recruiting players and helping to build throughout a club, including bringing in young players with big potential.
