Newcastle have had a bid accepted for the Norwich City defender Jamal Lewis.
The 22-year-old left-back was linked with a move to Liverpool earlier but the Reds could not agree on a fee with his club. Liverpool went on to sign Kostas Tsimikas instead.
According to Paul Joyce, the Magpies have secured an agreement with Norwich and the Championship outfit will receive around £13.5 million for the talented young defender.

Newcastle needed to sign a quality left-back this summer and Lewis should prove to be a superb signing. He was highly impressive for Norwich last season and he has a big future ahead of him.
A talent like him deserves to play in the Premier League and Newcastle could be the ideal platform for him.
Newcastle had Rose and Willems on loan last season and they needed a permanent solution to their left-back problems. Lewis could develop into a star for them next season.
It will be interesting to see if he can adapt to Bruce’s style immediately and make an instant impact for Newcastle.
Newcastle will have to improve their attack as well and they have been linked with the likes of Wilson and Fraser.
Here is what the fans had to say about Lewis.

Lewis, Fraser, Rogerio, Wilson hopefully and Holding. I’m really happy with these signings tbh. Fair play to Bruce and his team.
