Ferreyra seals Newcastle loan switch

Newcastle have bolstered their strikeforce ahead of the new Premier League campaign by signing Facundo Ferreyra from Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk on a season-long loan deal.

The Argentinian struggled to get into the first team at the Donbass Arena last season following a move from his native Velez Sarsfield in July 2013, although he did manage to find the net six times from five starts, and had been linked with a move to Newcastle for most of the summer.

That has now been completed by the Magpies, who have the option to buy the 23-year-old at the end of the season.

Ferreyra said on the club's official website: "I am very pleased to sign for Newcastle United. I like the Premier League and when I knew that Newcastle were interested in me, it was a very easy decision to make.

"I spoke to my friend Fabricio Coloccini, and when he told me about the club, I didn't need to think twice.''
