Ross McCormack to complete £12m Aston Villa move within 24 hours

The Irish international, 26, follows Idrissa Gueye out the door after signing a five-year deal at Newcastle.

The Toon triggered a £5m release clause in his contract.

Clark has spent his entire career at Villa but obviously feels Newcastle are a better bet to bounce back to the top flight.

He said: “Importantly, it is a club that is moving in the right direction and pushing for the right things, so I’m really excited to now be a part of that.”

Newcastle have also completed the £5m capture of Hull midfielder Mo Diame.
