Newcastle seal Gouffran deal

Newcastle have signed a second French player in the space of 24 hours after confirming the arrival of forward Yoan Gouffran from Bordeaux on deal until the summer of 2017.

Gouffran, 26, has joined for an undisclosed fee, agreeing a four-and-a-half year deal and his arrival comes on the same day as Newcastle unveiled defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa who joined from Montpellier on Tuesday.

Gouffran told the club's official website: "I am really proud to have joined this fantastic club. Throughout the last few years I have enjoyed every moment of my time at Bordeaux but all good things must come to an end and it was time for a new challenge.

"And the challenge of playing for one of the most famous teams in England, with all of its history and its famous support, is very exciting."

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew added: "Yoan comes to the Club with a great pedigree and, like the other signings we have made this month, is a player who will add considerable strength to our squad. I liked the look of him when we played Bordeaux at St. James' Park earlier this season; pacy, direct and intelligent and those are qualities I like in a footballer.

"I am sure he will quickly adapt to the rigours and intensity of the Premier League and play an important role for us for the remainder of the season."
