Newcastle fans will love Gael Bigirimana - Pardew
The ball-playing central midfielder has arrived from League One outfit Coventry City on a five-year deal and is expected to challenge for the first team next season.
Pardew told the Evening Chronicle: "I think our fans will like this boy. They will like his style a lot.
"It will be nice for them to see him in the first team. But it is a big jump."
