Newcastle - Newcastle has signed midfielder Henri Saivet from Bordeaux on a five-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old Saivet made 178 appearances for the French club in all competitions, scoring 23 goals during his stay in Bordeaux. He was part of the side that won the French league title in 2009.

"I am really proud to be able to play for this club, and I am really excited at the challenge that lies ahead," Saivet said.

Newcastle manager Steve McClaren told the club's official website that he was delighted with the deal for the midfielder, who becomes the club's first signing since the January transfer window opened.

"Henri is someone the club have been watching for a while and he has developed into an excellent player at Bordeaux," McClaren said.
