Inter winger Valentino Lazaro is already in England undergoing his medical for Newcastle United, for a deal worth €25m.
It had been reported last night in Italy that the clubs had reached an agreement, despite interest also from RB Leipzig.
This morning, Sky Sports UK confirm Lazaro is already in Tyneside for his tests and an announcement will come this afternoon.
The 23-year-old Austria international is expected to complete the transfer on loan for €1.5m with option to buy at the end of the season for a further €23.5m.
This more than makes up the €22.4m spent to bring him from Hertha Berlin only six months ago.
Lazaro made practically no impact on Inter during his brief stay, achieving two assists in 11 competitive games for a grand total of 513 minutes of football.
