Saivet completes Newcastle move


Newcastle have completed the signing of Henri Saivet from Bordeaux.

The 25-year-old Senegal international travelled to Tyneside on Monday to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms after the two clubs reached an agreement, believed to be in the region of £5million.

He subsequently signed a five-and-a-half year deal with the Magpies to become Steve McClaren's first signing of the January transfer window.

"I am very happy to be here at Newcastle. I am really proud to be able to play for this club, and I am really excited at the challenge that lies ahead," Saivet said.

"St James' Park is a really impressive and special stadium. In France, there is nothing that compares to this, and I can't wait to get out there with my new team-mates and help the team climb the table."

McClaren added: "Henri is someone the club has been watching for a while, and he has developed into an excellent player at Bordeaux.

"This is someone with a very good mentality, who is a tough player and a winner. Those are key qualities you need in the Premier League and we are looking forward to seeing him pulling on the Newcastle United shirt."

Saivet scored 23 goals in 178 appearances for Bordeaux.
