Newcastle United set to seal double swoop as personal terms agreed on  third transfer



Newcastle United transfers: Lewis Hall and Lloyd Kelly have agreed to terms, while talks regarding James Trafford continue.

Newcastle United have been preparing for the summer transfer market since wrapping off their rollercoaster 2023-24 season with a 4-2 victory over Brentford last month.

There has already been considerable action this week, ahead of the market’s official opening on Friday (June 14). Here, NewcastleWorld looks at the moves the Magpies are looking to complete, as well as the players that will or could leave:

Newcastle’s summer of incomings will officially begin with the permanent transfer of Lewis Hall from Chelsea. The 19-year-old spent last season on loan, and United have used performance-related criteria to make his move permanent for an initial £28 million.

The Slough-born defender struggled during his first six months on Tyneside, starting only four times. However, after returning from the March international, Hall started eight of the club’s eleven games, securing his place as the starting left-back next season.

According to NewcastleWorld, the Hall agreement would most likely be confirmed in late June or early July.

Lloyd Kelly is also slated to officially join around that time. The 25-year-old’s contract with AFC Bournemouth expires on June 30, and Newcastle have won the fight to recruit him ahead of Atletico Madrid and Roma.

There have been contradictory claims that Kelly orally agreed to a four- or five-year pact. In any case, the free transfer is almost complete, with the former England under-21 international scheduled to have his physical in the coming days.

Kelly is well-known to head coach Eddie Howe, who recruited him for Bournemouth from Bristol City for £13 million in 2019. Kelly, who can play both centre-back and left-back, made 141 appearances for the South Coast club and was captain when they were promoted back to the Premier League in 2021-22.
