Cape Town - Newcastle United defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has joined AS Roma on a permanent basis after meeting a contractual condition in the loan agreement between the clubs, the Premier League side said on Tuesday.

The France centre half joined Serie A side Roma on loan in September 2014 which has become permanent, the Premier League club said on its website (www.nufc.co.uk).

British media estimated the transfer fee at about £5.5 million pounds .

Yanga-Mbiwa, 25, was signed by Newcastle on a 5 and a half year contract from Montpellier in the 2013 January transfer window and made 11 league starts last season.

However, he failed to secure a first-team spot at St James' Park and leaves the north-east club having made a total of 46 appearances under previous manager Alan Pardew.
