Newcastle have signed striker Aleksandar Mitrovic on a five-year deal from Anderlecht.

The 20-year-old arrives subject to receiving the appropriate visa in a deal the club claims is the fourth biggest in their history.

The Serbia international said: "There will be pressure here, for sure, but I like pressure. I also know about the famous players who have played for Newcastle United, like Alan Shearer who is a hero of mine. I hope I can play like him for this club. It will be an honour."
