Newcastle United announced their 3rd transfer of the summer as DR Congo international Chancel Mbemba penned a five-year deal on Tyneside. Though, the deal is subject to the player receiving the appropriate work visa.
Mbemba, clearly delighted by the move, said: “I’m very, very happy to be here. This is the biggest league in the world and I’m very proud to wear the shirt for this team and play in this league.”
“I’m going to do everything I can to help make the supporters happy, to help out my teammates and to bring something extra to the team.”
“I know the team very well. I’ve watched the Premier League and I know this is a massive team with big players and with a great coach.”
“I’ve come here to Newcastle United because it’s a very good move in my career to play for such a famous club. I am excited for the season ahead.”
