Newcastle signing Gael Bigirimana excited playing with Cheick Tiote

Newcastle United signing Gael Bigirimana is excited about working with Cheick Tiote.

Bigirimana joined Toon last week from Coventry City.

The Burundi-born teenager told NUFC TV: "Right now, he is one of the best holding midfielders in the world and I can't wait to be under his wing.

"I just hope that I will learn every day and become close to him as a friend and as a person."
