Premier League side Newcastle United have completed the signing of Lazio left-back Jordan Lukaku on loan until the end of the season.
The Belgian, who is the younger brother to Manchester United’s striker Romelu Lukaku becomes the first new January arrival at the St. James’ Park.
The Magpies will have the option of making the move permanent in the summer although it remains unclear how much they will have to pay for his services.
The 24-year-old has featured sparingly for the Serie A side this campaign after struggling with a knee injury at the start of the season.
