Newcastle new boy Romain Amalfitano is determined to be his own man as he attempts to make his way in English football.

The 22-year-old former Reims midfielder, like a generation of French players, grew up idolising superstar Zinedine Zidane, but insists he will play his own way. Asked about his role models as a youngster, he told NUFC TV: "Being French, I would have to say Zinedine Zidane, but I didn't really have anybody particular in mind who I was looking up to.

"I try to look at all midfield players and see what each of them is doing, but I want to be and stay myself. My first goal is to impose myself. Obviously, I know that is not going to be easy and football goes very quickly, but it is not impossible.
