The 25-year-old France international told Canal Plus of his planned move to Tyneside over the weekend and Garcia said the same after LOSC completed their Ligue 1 season with a 3-2 win over Rennes on Sunday night.

Garcia said: "Yohan told us on Saturday - first me, then the whole group before the game - that he has chosen to join Newcastle.

"It is a choice that I respect, although I wish he continued the adventure with us."
