Former Coventry City midfielder Gael Bigirimana is thrilled about his move to Newcastle United.

Bigirimana's move was confirmed by the Magpies on Friday afternoon, and follows the arrival of French midfielder Romain Amalfitano.

He told NUFC TV: "It's a dream, it's a dream for me. Since I was a kid, I always watched the football - the Premier League and also big leagues - and I always hoped that one day I would make it.

"But I didn't realise it would be this soon, so it's an exciting moment in my life and a challenge which I am looking forward to."
