​DONE DEAL: Newcastle forward Mitrovic signs Fulham loan deal

Newcastle forward Aleksandar Mitrovic has finally found a new home.

On deadline day, the Serbian managed to sign for Championship club Fulham on loan for the remainder of the season.

Brighton had this month failed with an £8m offer for Mitrovic, while a loan to Anderlecht also fell through.

The 23-year-old fell out-of-favour with Rafa Benitez this season and was desperate to stay in decent knick ahead of the World Cup in June.

Fulham Director of Football Tony Khan said: "I'm thrilled to welcome Aleksandar to the Club. He is a talented player who has already amassed an impressive record at the highest levels of the game.

"We're looking forward to him joining the Fulham squad and helping us build towards our ultimate goal of promotion this season."
