Newcastle United transfer news: Completed summer deals

A look at the players who have arrived at St James' Park this summer and those who have departed

Newcastle started last season on fire but a mixture of injuries, controversy and poor form meant they finished the year with few people singing their praises.

The Magpies, and most importantly Alan Pardew, will want to put last season's demons to bed and get back to the free-flowing football that they showed before Christmas.

COMPLETED TRANSFERS

Remy Cabella - £12m from Montpellier

His record in Ligue 1 is hugely impressive – he scored 14 goals from the wing last season. He models himself and wants to have the kind of impact that former French wingers David Ginola and Laurent Robery had on Tyneside. If he can reach those heights, the Toon will have found themselves another French bargain.

Emmanuel Riviere - £6m from Monaco

Due to the que of attacking talent at Monaco, Riviere left the French side in search of more regular first-time football. He scored 10 times last season in Ligue 1 and played regular for France's youth teams.

Siem de Jong - £6m from Ajax

The former Ajax captain can play in a variety of positions; behind the striker, on the wing or up front. His goal record is good without being outstanding, but it’s his clever link up play and team play is what will have fans excited – he’s already been named Pardew’s vice-captain.

Daryl Janmaat - £5m from Feyenoord

With Mathieu Debuchy's move to Arsenal, Janmaat will be a capable replacement for the excellent Frenchman. The Dutch right back started for the Netherlands in the first three of their World Cup games before being dropped, but showed he was a good defender and willing runner up and down the touchline.

Ayoze Perez - £1.5m from Tenerife

Certainly one for the future, the 20-year-old will probably not get too many games at St James’ Park next season.

Jack Colback - Free from Sunderland

A real coup from the club, Newcastle stole one of their biggest rivals’ best players in Colback. Industrious and talented, he will not quite fill the void left by Yohan Cabaye but will certainly add steel to a weak midfield.

Facundo Ferreyra - Loan from Shakhtar Dontesk

The Argentine's move to Tyneside was hastened by the political instability in eastern Ukraine - he and five other Shakhtar players refused to return to the club last month following a pre-season friendly in France. That could be o Newcastle's good fortune - the midfielder is highly rated in the country of his birth.

Karl Darlow and Jamaal Lascelles - £7m from Nottingham Forest

Newcastle completed a double-swoop for the highly rated duo from Nottingham Forest before immediately loaning them back for the season. Both agreed long-term deals. 20-year-old Lascelles is a centre-back, whilst 23-year-old Darlow is a goalkeeper.
