Newcastle United have strengthened their defensive options with the transfer deadline-day signings of Dan Burn and Matt Targett.

The Magpies have spent £13m to sign boyhood Newcastle supporter Burn, 29, from Brighton and Hove Albion on a two-and-a-half-year deal.

“I’m delighted to bring Dan back to the North East,” said boss Eddie Howe.

Left-back Targett, 26, joins the club on loan from Aston Villa until the end of the season.

The Magpies also seemed to be closing in on France Under-20 striker Hugo Ekitike, 19, but the player had second thoughts on deadline day.
