Newcastle United have reached agreement with Southampton to sign Tino Livramento.

Sky Sports with the breaking news on Thursday afternoon.

A deal that will be a massive boost for Eddie Howe as he looks to strengthen his defensive options, especially on the right hand side.


The 20 year old right-back set to finally leave relegated Southampton, as they try to trade in this transfer window to generate cash to build a promotion side, using money from players who were always going to leave once the Saints failed to stay up.

On the 22 July 2023, Sky Sports reported that Southampton had turned down the then latest Newcastle United bid, believed to be around the £30m mark, this claimed to be the third NUFC bid turned down by the Saints.


However, now nine days before the Premier League season starts, Newcastle appear to have finally landed Tino Livramento.


Back in July, Sky Sports said that their information was that Southampton were trying to hold out for £40m, having knocked back the £30m NUFC bid.


Like Kieran Trippier, Tino Livramento is also able to play at left-back as well as his usual right-back position, the kind of flexibility Eddie Howe especially welcomes. The Toon target has also been involved in pre-season, playing in Southampton’s friendlies, so all sounds positive on the fitness front.


The outgoing NUFC deals (Wood, ASM, Darlow) enabling Newcastle United to have far more flexibility where FFP is concerned, as well as of course helping to finance new signings.


Newcastle United have been linked with Tino Livramento for some time and back in June it was reported that Newcastle United had seen an opening offer rejected, believed to have been £15m guaranteed, plus more money down the line in potential future add-ons.


A deal for Tino Livramento was/is complicated by the fact that after forcing a move as an 18 year from Chelsea, Southampton paid only an initial £5m in summer 2021, but with a very hefty sell-on clause if Tino Livramento then ever moved on from Saints.


Newcastle United went back to Southampton with an offer of £23m in late June according to The Athletic, but that second bid was also rejected.


Southampton would have banked only £15m from that £23m fee once Chelsea had taken their cut and at the time The Athletic said that the relegated club were still desperately hoping to bank a far higher amount, understood to be £30m. However, the Chelsea transfer clause would mean (Chelsea get an increasing percentage the higher the transfer fee) that a bid of around £50m would be needed, for Southampton to get their £30m. Which was/is surely totally unrealistic based on what the 20 year old has shown so far.


Tino Livramento instantly became first choice Southampton right-back and started 27 matches in the 2021/22 season and came off the bench in another five. However, his debut season in the Premier League was cruelly cut short when in April 2022 he sustained an ACL injury in a game against Brighton.


It would be 13 months before Tino Livramento made his Premier League comeback, the final week of last season seeing two brief sub appearances after missing almost the entire season.
Tino Livramento has already played at St James’ Park, he started back in August 2021 when Steve Bruce’s NUFC drew 2-2 with Southampton.

The young defender also started in the reverse fixture that season, Eddie Howe’s Mags winning 2-1 at St Mary’s, Bruno’s first ever start when he scored that spectacular backheel volley winner.
