Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko says it's been easy to settle on Tyneside.

Sissoko has been a revelation since his January move from Toulouse.

"The people are really kind and generous. The city is very beautiful and very young with a lot of students around," he told the Mirror.

"The only negative thing it is a bit cold, but spring is coming and it is a bit nicer now. And we have the Europa League challenge to look forward to!"
