Newcastle complete £13.5m deal for Norwich star Lewis in aftermath of Liverpool links

The young Northern Ireland international becomes the Magpies’ fifth summer signing after previously being connected with a move to Anfield

Newcastle United have completed the signing of highly rated Norwich City defender Jamal Lewis, the Magpies confirmed on Tuesday.

Lewis, 22, came to the fore with a fine season at Norwich under difficult circumstances, proving one of the few high points in a 2019-20 campaign that ended with the Canaries bottom of the table and relegated.

That form placed him in the sights of several Premier League clubs this summer, with Liverpool among others linked with an approach to make Lewis Andrew Robertson’s deputy at left-back before the club signed Kostas Tsimikas.
