Alexander Isak signed for Newcastle United in the last week of the first full summer transfer window under the new Saudi ownership of 2022.

The fee, £58m, smashed the clubs previous transfer record of £40m paid three season earlier for fans favourite Joelinton.

The signing was a landmark moment for Eddie Howe and the club, with cover and a challenge for the starting spot required for the unfortunately injury prone Calum Wilson.

Isak became the 4th signing of that window, with Matt Targett, (£15m), Nick Pope (£10m) and Sven Botman (£37m) having already joined over that Summer.

In his first season at the club Isak would play a significant role in allowing Newcastle United to reach the Champions League again (after a 25 year wait). He would also play in the League Cup Final that first season, one that would ultimately end in defeat in a 2-0 reverse to Manchester United. His highlight reel of that campaign would include an outrageous piece of skill away to Everton beating a succession of Toffee players in an incredible run down the left wing, and a brace at home to Spurs that put Newcastle 5-0 up inside 25 minutes at St James Park.
