Newcastle United can confirm that due to the nature of Saturday's pre-season friendly against Borussia MÃ¶nchengladbach, the Club has obtained the necessary permissions in order for Chancel Mbemba to be involved in the squad to face the Bundesliga outfit.
The Club would like to thank Anderlecht for their co-operation in this matter.
The player has an appointment overseas in midweek to make his formal visa application, which the Club expect to be issued in order that he can be available for selection for the Magpies' first game of the Barclays Premier League season against Southampton.
Cash turnstiles will be in operation at St. James' Park for Saturday's game (kick-off 3pm). Click here for more details.
