Bienvenue! This is how Newcastle decked out their club canteen to welcome their 14-strong French-speaking legion to dinner on deadline day…
You can almost hear ‘La Marseillaise’ playing in the background.
As for the menu, it too was suitably Gallic…
Much as the club laid on a platter of curried goat for Senegalese duo Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse upon their arrival, it seems that Newcastle will happily go out of their way to help their newbies settle in – it’s lovely to see.
