Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez is ready to allow Chancel Mbemba leave for Porto after an £8 million bid from the Portuguese giants.

The Mirror report a four-year contract has been agreed between Porto and Mbemba’s representatives, as the DR Congo defender’s time in England draws to a close.

Aged just 23, Mbemba found it difficult to establish himself on Tyneside under Benitez. Making just 11 appearances for the Magpies last season, it became apparent the centre-half might be heading elsewhere for the next campaign.

Whether that would be on loan or on a permanent deal was a matter for discussion however, but it now appears as though Mbemba will leave St James’ Park for good.

Third club enter the race to sign in-demand Newcastle midfielder .
La Liga side Sevilla have joined the race to sign Mikel Merino from Newcastle this summer. Chronicle Live claim that Sevilla will battle Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad for the player’s services. The former Borussia Dortmund midfielder looks set to leave the Magpies after just one season at the club. Sociedad have already lodged a £10 million bid to sign the Spaniard, but Sevilla see him as a potential central midfield partner for Roque Mesa. Mesa looks set to secure a permanent move to Spain after spending the second half of the season on loan from Swansea. Sevilla would need to match the £10 million that Sociedad have offered to be in with a chance of signing the player. The report claims that it is not of the question that Merino stays at the club beyond the end of the summer transfer window, but with interest mounting, his long-term future appears to be away from Newcastle.
