Kieran Trippier has arrived in the North East to complete the final steps of his £12m transfer to Newcastle from Atletico Madrid.
The England right-back will undergo a medical and is set to sign a two-and-a-half-year contract with the option of a further year.
Newcastle and Atletico agreed a deal to sign Trippier as the conclusion of smooth and positive talks on Tuesday.
The club will pay £12m plus add-ons to make the 31-year-old the first signing of the new Newcastle era under the Saudi Arabia-backed regime.
Atletico hoped Trippier would stay, but the defender made it clear he wanted to return to England.
Magpies boss Eddie Howe worked with Trippier while in charge of Burnley, signing the right-back from Manchester City in January 2012 after an impressive loan spell at Turf Moor.
