He scored just one international goal for his national team.

After joining the club Mitrovic spoke to the official website, he said: I am so happy to have signed for Newcastle.

I visited the stadium and it is amazing. I have played in a lot of impressive stadiums in my career but St. James’ Park is so big, I can’t wait to play my first game here.

I know how passionate the fans are. This is a club with a very big history and the fans are a big part of that. There will be pressure here, for sure, but I like pressure.

I also know about the famous players who have played for Newcastle United, like Alan Shearer, who is a hero of mine. I hope I can play like him for this Club. It will be an honour.

Necastle boss Steve McClaren too spoke about his new signing. He opined: This is a fantastic signing for us. We have fought off a lot of competition to secure a top young talent in Europe.

Aleksandar is someone who can develop with the team and someone who will help us to get to where we want to go.

As a Board we have worked hard to make it happen. It is another demonstration that we are wanting to push on.
