The talented Southampton defender Tino Livramento will reject Chelsea in favour of a move to Newcastle United this summer. 

As per the Mail, Croydon-born Livramento, who came through Chelsea's youth ranks before rising to prominence at St. Mary's, has no interest in returning to his former club during the current transfer window, preferring instead to join Eddie Howe's Magpies. Southampton were relegated last season and a number of players are expected to leave, with Livramento, 20, among their most sought-after assets.
