MAPOU Yanga-Mbiwa has joined AS Roma on a season-long loan.

The Newcastle United defender’s move to the Stadio Olympico is with a view to a £4m permanent move.

Yanga-Mbiwa has found his chances at St James’s Park limited since his move from Montpellier in January last year.

The 25-year-old will not be replaced in this transfer window.
