Newcastle have agreed a deal to sign defender Chancel Mbemba from Anderlecht that hinges on a work permit being granted.

The 20-year-old DR Congo international completed his medical in Newcastle and agreed personal terms with the Premier League club. Mbemba still needs to obtain a visa to complete the deal.

Mbemba is set to join new Magpies signings Georginio Wijnaldum, who arrived from PSV Eindhoven, and former Anderlecht team-mate Aleksandar Mitrovic at St James' Park this coming season.
