REMIE Streete is set to sign for a new club – after being released by Newcastle United.

The defender revealed on Twitter yesterday that he was set for a “new start” away from St James’s Park.

Streete, from South Shields, was not offered a new deal by Newcastle.

The 20-year-old tweeted: “I will be signing for my new club tomorrow (Monday) afternoon. #NewStart”

Streete did not reveal his intended destination.

However, he had a brief loan spell at Port Vale last season.

And Vale chairman Norman Smurthwaite claimed last week that he had agreed terms with an unnamed player.

Smurthwaite said he hoped to complete the deal today.
