Newcastle defender set for £8million Porto move

Newcastle defender Chancel Mbemba has agreed a four year deal with Porto.

The Portuguese club is discussing a fee of around £8million for the 23 year-old.

Congo international Mbemba is not in Rafa Benitez plans and is attracted by playing in the Champions’ League next season.

Newcastle are lightening their wage bill of around £95million and raising cash.

Other sales could include Mikel Merino, who is pondering a return to Spain, with Real Betis interested.

Dwight Gayle could also move on to spearhead another Championship promotion campaign with relegated Stoke looking at the striker.
