NEWCASTLE United have completed the loan move for Facundo Ferreyra.

The striker joins on a season-long loan from Shaktar Donetsk, with an option to make a permanent switch at the end of the spell.

Ferreyra said: “I am very pleased to sign for Newcastle United.

“I like the Premier League and when I knew that Newcastle were interested in me, it was a very easy decision to make.

“I spoke to my friend Fabricio Coloccini, and when he told me about the club, I didn’t need to think twice.”

The 23-year-old has joined the Newcastle squad in Germany as they complete their Schalke 04 Cup matches.
