Newcastle United confirm transfer deadline day exit
Federico Fernandez has left Newcastle United in the final hour of the transfer window.
The defender – who joined the club from Swansea City four years ago – has signed for Elche in Spain.
Fernandez made 89 appearances, and scored two goals, for the club.
The 33-year-old was hit by injuries last season, and only made two appearances under head coach Eddie Howe.
A club statement read: “Fernandez departs with the best wishes of everybody at Newcastle United, and the club thanks him for his service.”
