Newcastle United young gun Gael Bigirimana hopes to learn from senior teammates Cheick Tiote and Yohan Cabaye.

Bigirimana arrived earlier this summer from Coventry City.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "I hope to learn from them. I want to keep learning from different players.

"If we all keep our heads down and focus on one thing - our football - and try to learn what the manager and staff says, you never know what can happen this season."
