Newcastle United managing director Derek Llambias says they're pleased with their summer market work.
Toon fell short failing to land a new striker, but Llambias insists their recruits all have outstanding potential.
He said in a statement: "Now that the transfer window has closed, we have had some time to reflect on the business we have conducted over the summer.
"Our aim was to secure young players who represented value for money and could add real strength to the squad.
"The majority of our transfer dealings were completed in the early part of the window and we feel we have signed some players of exceptional quality.
"Davide is an excellent young prospect and we are sure he will be another superb addition to the squad.
"Of course we had also hoped to secure a further striker in the window, in addition to Demba Ba."
