Newcastle United have confirmed the free transfer signing of Lloyd Kelly.

Kelly’s contract with Bournemouth expires at the end of this month, making him a free agent as he moves to St James' Park.

The defender has signed a five-year deal with the Magpies.

Newcastle sought to secure Kelly after their top defensive target, Tosin Adarabioyo, opted to join Chelsea on a free transfer from Fulham.

Despite interest from European clubs, Kelly decided to reunite with Eddie Howe, who originally signed him for Bournemouth from Bristol City in 2019.

Speaking on his move, Kelly said: “It's amazing to be coming here. I know how big the club is and how much it means to all the fans, and I just want to hit the ground running and get to work.

“It’s a big move for myself and the family - of course being down south is a bit different - but I think the city of Newcastle is amazing, with the contrast between city life and the countryside.

“It wasn't a hard decision for me to come here. Working with the gaffer previously, I know what he wants from his players and how he wants his players to play, and I think with what I can bring it just makes sense. I just can't wait to get started.”

As a football fan, I'm excited to see Kelly join Newcastle United on a free transfer. He's a talented defender and I think he'll be a great addition to the team. It's a shame that Adarabioyo chose to join Chelsea instead, but I'm happy to see Kelly reunite with Eddie Howe. Looking forward to seeing what he brings to the Magpies!
