Ghana midfielder Christian Atsu has agreed to join Premier League returnees Newcastle United in a permanent deal from champions Chelsea, according to Sky Sports.

Atsu reportedly accepted a four-year contract after Newcastle opted to strike a clause in his loan deal from Chelsea which will cost the Magpies around £6.5 million as coach Rafael Benitez hopes to strengthen his side ahead of the new season.

Atsu joined Chelsea from FC Porto in 2013 but failed to make a first team appearance, leading to loan spells at Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem, Everton, Bournemouth and Malaga.

Goal understand that Newcastle are also tracking Manchester City's Aaron Mooy as well as Florian Thauvin while Tom Headman is likely to be given a new deal.
