de­lighted that Joe has got him on board for us.

“He’ll be a great ad­di­tion to the squad and I’m sure he’ll bring plenty of goals.

“It’s a big sea­son for Loic, like it is for all our in­ter­na­tional play­ers ahead of the World Cup, which will only pro­vide ex­tra in­cen­tive for him to play at the very top of his game.”


Gomis ad­mits he’s been left in limbo over New­cas­tle’s cash row with Lyon.

The France striker is des­per­ate to seal a £7mil­lion move af­ter agree­ing £45,000-aweek per­sonal terms.

But the deal has stalled over a £350,000 sev­er­ance deal, with Lyon claim­ing Gomis’ ar­rest over an un­proven rape charge has tar­nished the club. They’re stalling on the trans­fer un­til New­cas­tle agree to meet the cost.

It means a frus­trat­ing wait for Gomis, who sent thanks to Toon fans for their birth­day wishes as he turned 28 on Tues­day.

He said: “Thanks for all the sup­port that you guys have given me. Sadly, the de­ci­sion to come to join you is not just my own, it’s more com­pli­cated.”
