Kevin Mbabu feeling settled at Newcastle

Former Servette midfielder Kevin Mbabu says he already feels settled at Newcastle United.

The teen joined Newcastle in January.

"I'm settling in really well in my first few weeks here," he told the Club's official matchday programme. "It is thanks mostly to the players, who have given me a fantastic welcome.

"They have all been very kind. Of course, the French-speaking players have been great but I have also been spending a lot of time with the likes of James Tavernier, Sammy Ameobi and Haris Vuckic. When I first arrived it was them who actually approached and talked to me first.

"I train mostly with the Reserves but from time to time - maybe once or twice a week - I am with the first-team and that is when there is a massive step up in terms of the rhythm.

"My long-term aim is to play as a first-team player. I am only 17 so there is a long way to go but in the future I hope to integrate into the first-team and to succeed with them."
