Pic Special: Mbemba The Magpie
Newcastle United have announced the signing of Anderlecht defender Chancel Mbemba after the Club received a Governing Body Endorsement (GBE) for the player at an FA hearing on Thursday (30th July).
The deal is subject to Mbemba receiving the appropriate visa.
Mbemba becomes Newcastle United's third signing of the summer, after completing the switch from Anderlecht. The 20-year-old DR Congo international defender has agreed a five-year deal on Tyneside.
Mbemba is now required to apply for his visa overseas, with the hope that he is then able to return to join his new teammates in Newcastle midweek.
