Official: Lazaar to Benevento

Newcastle United left-back Achraf Lazaar has officially joined Benevento on loan with option to buy.

It’s reported to be a loan with option to buy for €3.5m.

Lazaar only made the move to Newcastle last summer for €2.85m and helped them earn promotion to the Premier League.

The 25-year-old Morocco international also played for Varese.

He arrived in Milan and finalised the deal with just minutes to go before the transfer deadline.
