Both impressed in the Championship, helping Newcastle to 19 clean sheets, including 11 in away matches.
But Lejeune will push for regular Premier League starts, and FPL managers would be wise to monitor the progress from the former Eibar player.
Formerly of Manchester City, he enjoyed an outstanding 2016/17.
Dominant in the air, Lejeune won 115 aerial duels. His overall success rate of 76.2% was the best for defenders in LaLiga.
His 191 clearances for Eibar were again top for the division.
Overall for clearances, blocks and interceptions (CBI) – a key metric in the Bonus Points System (BPS) – Lejeune’s 281 was second to German Pezzella, of Real Betis, with 282.
Although Lascelles and Clark both registered CBI at a faster rate than Lejeune last season, his pedigree in Spain suggests he can be a real force.
He also represents a significant goal threat.
Lejeune scored only one goal last season but fired 28 shots, with 12 coming from outside the penalty area.
|Mins per CBI||8.4||7.6||10.4|
|Mins per shot||153.1||131.9||104.5|
Newcastle also boast a promising start to the new season.
If Lejeune can claim a starting role over this run, his dominance in the air could help him pick up big BPS returns and threaten goals.
The Newcastle defence could be priced at £4.5m across the backline, but Lejeune looks equipped to offer the best value of all.
