DONE DEAL: Saivet leaves Newcastle for St Etienne loan

Senegal international midfielder Henri Saivet has signed for French side St Etienne on a season-long loan from Championship club Newcastle United.

The 25-year-old joined Newcastle in January but made only two appearances for the club, who were relegated from the Premier League.

Saivet told the club's website: "I am very happy and relieved to have the chance to play again.

"I want to win the Greens. I will do everything to show I am motivated."
