Bigrimana keen to link up with Tiote

Published Add your comment

Newcastle new boy Gael Bigirimana is hoping to learn from one of the best in the business as he prepares to join forces with Cheick Tiote.

The 18-year-old midfielder completed his dream move from Coventry to Tyneside on Friday when he put pen to paper on a five-year contract. He is likely to go straight into the development squad, but cannot wait for the moment he gets to work along side Ivory Coast international Tiote.

The Burundi-born teenager told NUFC TV: "Right now, he is one of the best holding midfielders in the world and I can't wait to be under his wing. I just hope that I will learn every day and become close to him as a friend and as a person."
