Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa determined to hit ground running at Newcastle
Yanga-Mbiwa said: "I will do everything I can to help team spirit and make sure we are acting as one from the first minute until the last.
"Last year at Montpellier nobody expected that we would win the league but we had the mentality and solidity to do it with a good team spirit.
"The Premier League is the biggest league in the world and one of those leagues that everybody watches. One of the reasons I came here was to find out how good I am and to fulfil one of my dreams."
