As per the journalist, the Tyneside club have agreed on a loan extension with Valentino Lazaro to ensure he can play until the end of the 2019/20 Premier League season.
Should Newcastle sign Lazaro permanently?
Ryder understands that the Magpies and Inter Milan have held some dialogue and drawn up a new deal. Lazaro was originally set to remain on loan until June 30 but the Toon have now agreed on a short-term extension with the 24-year old. The new arrangement means that Lazaro can now play in the remainder of the games in the Premier League in June and July, and up until August 1 in the event that Newcastle reach the FA Cup final.
The Austrian international has made five appearances in all competitions for the Magpies so far, scoring one goal, according to Transfermarkt.
These Newcastle supporters lauded the news as Lazaro provides another option for them for the remainder of the season:
