Newcastle United boss Sam Allardyce is delighted with the capture of defender David Rozehnal from PSG.

The manager said: "He is a very, very useful player indeed. It is a terrific deal for the club.

"He is a smashing fellow, a guy who speaks perfect English and four other languages.

"He is very, very ambitious indeed and I was very impressed with David not just as a footballer, but also as a person and a character, and that will stand us in good stead over the next few years."
