Joselu Mato Sanmartín

Position:
Forward
Date signed:
16th August 2017

Spanish striker Joselu was the Magpies’ sixth summer signing in 2017, arriving from Stoke City. He scored on his full debut for the club, against West Ham in the Premier League.

The 27-year-old was the Magpies’ sixth summer signing in 2017, penning a three-year-deal with the club which will keep him at St. James’ Park until 2020.

Joselu began his career at Celta Vigo, coming through the ranks at the Balaidos before joining Spanish giants Real Madrid in 2009.

After a stint on loan back at Celta, he became a prolific goalscorer for Los Blancos’ B team – form which saw him make the step up to Real’s first team, where he scored on his debut against Almeria.

A move to German side Hoffenheim followed in 2012, and after a productive loan spell at Eintracht Frankfurt during the 2013/14, Joselu joined fellow Bundesliga side Hannover 96 in the summer of 2014.

His ten goals in 32 outings in his solitary season at Hannover earned him a move to the Premier League with Stoke in June 2015. In total, the Spanish frontman made 27 appearances for the Potters, scoring four times, and also netted four goals during his time on loan at Deportivo La Coruña last term.
