Lewis Hall is officially a Newcastle United player, and will now be getting to know his new teammates.
While the move was only announced on Tuesday, it was actually Friday when Hall had his medical on Tyneside. He was then at the Etihad on Saturday to watch his new side lose 1-0 to Manchester City.
Now the move is official, and Hall can properly get to work with his new team as they prepare for this weekend’s game against Liverpool.

Kieran Trippier remembers key detail about Lewis Hall and his family
During the video on Newcastle’s official YouTube channel, Hall can be seen going through his medical. He is joined by Trippier, who welcomes him to the club.
The 32-year-old then stated that they had met a couple of times playing against each other, and shared something Hall told him on the pitch about his family.
Trippier: “Your family are Geordies, right? Were you saying that when we played each other on the pitch last time?”
Hall: “Yeah they all support Newcastle.”
Newcastle fans through and through
Firstly, it is great to see Trippier introducing himself to the new lad and immediately welcoming him into the group.
Secondly, the fact that he remembered what Hall had told him when they previously met will surely have meant a lot to the left-back. They played against each other twice last season, with Hall featuring in both fixtures against the Magpies – including making his Premier League debut at St James’ Park.
It says a lot about Trippier’s personality that he remembers small details like that. That personable quality is what makes him so endearing and such a good leader.
For Hall, he will no doubt feel at ease alongside Trippier, while he is clearly immensely proud to join his family’s club at such an exciting time.
He will be eager to start playing alongside Trippier as soon as possible and get the chance to make his family even prouder than they already are.
