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."
