Janmaat has Newcastle medical

Daryl Janmaat has arrived in Newcastle and will undergo his medical at St James Park on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old Dutch defender is expected to sign for the Magpies who have already agreed a deal with Feyenoord - although details of the transfer fee have yet to be disclosed.

And if Janmaat puts pen to paper in Newcastle, the signing will allow Mathieu Debuchy to move to Arsenal.

Gunners' boss Arsene Wenger is keen to buy the French right-back but Newcastle are holding firm until their replacement signs on the dotted line.

Should Janmaat join Newcastle, he will not be heading to New Zealand later this week for the club's pre-season tour, as he will be taking a well-earned break following his participation at the recent World Cup finals in Brazil.

Meanwhile, manager Alan Pardew is also hoping to secure Monaco striker Emmanuel Riviere for a reported fee of 6m.
