“Football Insider exclusively revealed earlier this month that the player had agreed personal terms with the north east club and that he has already undergone a medical on Tyneside to complete the move.”

It continues: “The promising talent can operate in central, defensive or attacking midfield roles. Newcastle believe he has the potential to make a mark on the first-team in the future.”

Scott’s arrival comes just three days after United splashed out £35million to land Joelinton from Hoffenheim.
