24-year old Georginio’s signing is our first since the double swoop of Darlow/Lascelles almost 1 year ago. The technical box-to-box midfielder joined us for a massive £14.5m from Dutch side PSV of the 11th July 2015. He is the most expensive transfer ever of the Mike Ashley era and our 3rd most expensive of all time. Last season alone he netted 18 times and made 5 assists in 42 appearances. His total record for PSV stands at 152 appearances with 56 goals & 23 assists. That translates as 0.37 G/PG & 0.15 A/PG ratios – impressive for a central midfielder.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (21/7/15)

Aleksandar Mitrovic joined NUFC on the 21th July 2015 for a bumper £13m fee from Belgian side Anderlecht, signing a 5-year deal. Aged only 20 Mitrovic is one of the hottest prospects in European football. He joined Anderlecht from Serbian side Partizan for a club record €5m aged only 18 and did not disappoint. The Serbian international went on to make 90 competitive appearances, scoring 44 times. In the 14/15 campaign alone he netted 20 goals, more than Cisse, Perez & Riviere combined (19 – 11+7+1).

Chancel Mbemba (30/7/15)

NUFC have finally announced the capture of Anderlecht centre-back Chancel Mbemba after receiving a Governing Body Endorsement (GBE) for the player at an F.A. hearing of the 30th July. The 20-year old (yes, twenty) DR Congo international joins us for an estimated £7m fee. He joined Anderlecht in 2011 (aged 16) and went on to make 63 appearances, netting 6 times. In 2012 he became a full international and has since made 17 appearances for his national side.

Ivan Toney (6/8/15)

Toney joins us from League Two side Northampton for a fee believed to be around £500,000 plus bonuses. Ivan made headlines in 2012 after having made his debut for Northampton, making him the youngest ever player to represent them. Now aged only 19 he is expected to join up with Peter Beardsley’s U21 side.

Florian Thauvin (19/8/15)

Florian Thauvin joins us from French giants Marseille in an estimated £12m move, with Remy Cabella joining them on an initial season-long loan, with view to a permanent £8m (estimated) deal; “subject to criteria being met” (appearances?). Aged only 22 the French winger joins us as one of the highest regarded young talents in European football. He made a total of 79 appearances for the French club between 2013-2015, netting 15 and assisting 14.
