Romain Amalfitano is excited to be playing for Newcastle United's passionate support.

The midfielder, 22, has signed for Toon from Riems.

He told NUFC TV: "I am obviously very excited to know that there are 52,000 fans in the stadium. I think there is a whole city behind this club supporting the club.

"Obviously, I am very excited and I can also feel the pressure. I will have to deal with that and I will adapt.

"I just want to prove to them that I have the desire and energy to succeed. I really want to do well here, not only on a personal level, but also for the club.
