Newcastle boss Bruce hopes to sign Inter Milan winger Lazaro today

Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce has confirmed they hope to sign Inter Milan winger Valentino Lazaro today.

Lazaro could make his Newcastle debut against Oxford in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday after arriving on Tyneside to undergo a medical.

Speaking at his pre-match pres conference, head coach Bruce said: "Well, he's here, he's in the building, which is a good sign.

"I think it's fair to say that we've managed to hold off a couple of clubs because once he became available, then somebody of his pedigree was always going to have a few options, and thankfully he's chosen us.

"He's here, we're hoping that we can get the paperwork and everything done so he can play tomorrow."
