The Congo international was not in Rafael Benitez's plans last season and was used as a back-up to Florian Lejeuene, Jamaal Lascelles and Ciaran Clark.

According to the Mirror, Newcastle will sell the defender to the Portuguese club for £8million and Mbemba will sign a four-year deal.

The report adds that the 23-year-old is attracted to the prospect of playing Champions League football next season, while the Magpies are looking to lower their wage bill of around £95m.
