Newcastle make Mikel Merino loan deal permanent after an impressive start

Noah Ferguson | 14 October, 2017, 08:30

Newcastle United announced earlier today that they have activated a clause in Mikel Merino's loan deal from Borussia Dortmund to sign him on a permanent basis.

The Spain Under-21 worldwide midfielder has started six matches in the Premier League for the Magpies so far this campaign.

Mikel Merino has featured in all of Newcastle United's Premier League matches this season. Listen to the latest episode and subscribe to the podcast on Deezer and iTunes. "I'm happy to be here for five more years and I hope to keep playing for this club and to give good things to all the people and the club", he told the club's official channel NUFC TV.

Newcastle won automatic promotion from Championship to the Premier League at the end of last season.

Newcastle coach Rafa Benitez says, "He has settled in quickly, has a lot of quality on the ball, and is keen to learn".

The 21-year-old has been favourably compared to Xabi Alonso, another hugely influential Benítez signing at Liverpool, and he has made a huge impression in a handful of games on Tyneside. The young Spaniard had flashed plenty of promise at the Signal Iduna Park, even if playing time had been hard to come by.

Merino is expected to feature when Newcastle face Southampton at St Mary's on Sunday afternoon.
