DONE DEAL: Newcastle complete defender signing

Newcastle United have completed the the £5.5million signing of Grant Hanley from Blackburn Rovers.

The defender has signed a five-year deal at St James Park and will look to help Newcastle return to the Premier League at the first attempt.

It is a fantastic opportunity to come and play at such a big club and one that I couldn’t turn down.

It is an exciting step in my career but it doesn’t stop there. This is just the start and I am looking forward to helping Newcastle get back in the Premier League.

Newcastle were short of defensive cover following the departures of experienced defenders Fabricio Coloccini and Steven Taylor this summer.
