Newcastle United have confirmed the signing of Aston Villa defender Ciaran Clark.
The Irishman moves to Newcastle after spending his whole career at Villa Park where he came through the clubs academy.
He told the clubs website:
Newcastle is a massive club so I’m really happy to be here.
Importantly, it is a club that is moving in the right direction and pushing for the right things, so I’m really excited to now be a part of that.
Things seem to have progressed really quickly over the last few days but I’m delighted to have got it all done and be a part of this squad.
The deal to take Clark to St James’ Park is believed to be worth around £5million
