The cash-rich Magpies were expected to have a squad overhaul of their own making impact signings in the window. However, Howe and the management had not yet made an impact signing that could change the face of the club.

Moreover, the player too expressed delight on the move to Newcastle on the club’s website.

He said-

“I’m delighted to have it done. It was a big, big decision for me but it is a decision I am really happy with.

“It is a great, historical club that I think anyone would like to play for, with amazing fans. They were a big part of why I came here – and also the club’s project, which is one that I really believe in.

“You always want to go into a team and know how they play. I think Newcastle play very attractive football and I want to be a part of that.”

As things stand, Newcastle have made an impact signing with Isak joining the club. Moreover, it will be interesting to see what the Magpies make out of this season with the forward.
