Newcastle United: Florian Lejeune exit ‘practically done’ - Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

A Newcastle United exit for Florian Lejeune is ‘practically done’, a report has claimed.

The Lowdown: Lejeune on the fringes

Lejeune is certainly a player who is on the fringes at St. James’ Park, having been shipped out on loan to Deportivo Alaves in the 2020/21 season.

Does Lejeune get into the Newcastle starting eleven?

Yes

Yes

No

No

To be fair to him, he did fairly well, winning no fewer than 4.9 of his duels per game in La Liga, while also averaging 4.3 clearances, 1.5 interceptions and 1.3 tackles per match, keeping eight clean sheets in the process (Sofascore).

The Latest: Exit ‘practically done’

As per AS, a return for Lejeune back to Alaves is ‘practically done’, after sports director Sergio Fernandez admitted at the back end of the last term that he was interested in signing him on a permanent deal.

Lejeune has joined up with his teammates in the North East for pre-season, but did not play in the friendly game against York.

The Verdict: Sell

With the wealth of centre-back options that the Tyneside club, including the likes of Jamaal Lascelles, Fabian Schar, Ciaran Clark and Federico Fernandez, it would be a wise idea for them to sell Lejeune in order to raise some funds to spend in the window.

Currently earning £40,000-per-week with the Magpies, selling the Frenchman would free up a decent chunk money from their wage bill, and at 30 years of age, now may be the last good chance to cash in.
