Goalkeeper Matz Sels leaves Newcastle to join Anderlecht on season-long loan deal

Newcastle United paid Gent a fee of £5m for Sels’s signature last summer and he initially found himself as first-choice stopper at St James’ Park.

However, he did not make an appearance in the Championship after the end of September, and the Magpies have made the decision to allow him to gain regular football back in Belgium.

Rafael Benitez has plenty of options between the sticks, with Rob Elliot, Karl Darlow and Freddie Woodman all in the picture at the North-East outfit.
