Footage from NewcastleWorld captures Alexander Isak leaving the Newcastle United training ground as his club record nears.

Alexander Isak has left Newcastle United’s training ground after completing the first leg of his club record.

The Sweden international arrived at the club’s training base in Benton earlier this afternoon after flying in from San Sebastian.

The Magpies have agreed a £58million deal with Real Sociedad as part of the build-up to last night’s second round Carabao Cup win over Tranmere Rovers.

Sporting director Dan Ashworth and head of recruitment Steve Nickson were in the Basque Country conducting negotiations.

Isak is on Tyneside to complete medical tests and other formalities before officially becoming a Newcastle United player.

Previously, a deal for Isak seemed out of reach due to the numbers involved, but United have reached a compromise with Sociedad.

The fee will smash the club’s previous transfer record. It was Joelinton’s £40m arrival from Hoffenheim in 2019.
