The under-19 international has joined the Blues from Hajduk Split in a deal that will see him loaned back to that club until summer 2020.

The Wales international's departure has earned the Blues £11m for a player who did not once feature in a first-team match-day squad.

More importantly, however, it is 157 top-flight games - and 1,859 days - since Newcastle played with a numerical advantage against a side due to an … [Read more...] about It is now 1,826 days since a PL player was sent off vs Newcastle
