Newcastle United has wrapped up a loan deal for Seydou Doumbia from AS Roma. The loan deal will see him at St.James Park until the end of the season, with an option for a permanent transfer. Doumbia enjoyed an impressive career at Swiss club Young Boys and Russian side CSKA Moscow. However, his transfer to AS Roma did not materialise as expected and he will be defiant to rescue his career, which is derailing.

The Ivory Coast international undergo a medical at Newcastle last day and is content after completing the loan move, which the player phrases as a “dream come true.”

“I am delighted to be a Newcastle United player.” The forward spoke.

 I have already started to prepare. I have arrived and I am ready to go. It has always been a dream to play in the Premier League and now that dream has come true, so I am delighted. I am looking forward to helping the club get some wins and climb the table.”

Newcastle manager Steve McClaren hid no excitement of his on signing the player, and believes he has got firepower to rescue Newcastle from relegation.

“He is a natural goalscorer, someone who has scored goals in the Champions League and has played at the highest level. We believe he can make a mark in this team.” The manager said.

Newcastle also tried to sign Berahino from West Brom but the deal did not happen to occur, as West brom were reluctant to sell him.

“It is no secret that we have been looking to add to our options in the striking area. We have been searching for a forward and were delighted when the opportunity arose to take Seydou on loan.” The coach added.

Seydou Doumbia’s debut is still subjected to his Visa approval, but Newcastle believes they can deal with it before the next matchday.
