Newcastle will play their home games at St James' Park once again after payday loans company wonga.com snapped up the naming rights to the stadium.

The Magpies on Tuesday announced a four-year sponsorship deal with Wonga which will see the company's logo worn on their shirts from next season and £1.5million ploughed into the club's Academy and the Newcastle United Foundation Enterprise Scheme.

However, they left it to their new sponsors to reveal that they had also bought the naming rights to the 52,000-capacity stadium and, having listened to the reaction of fans when news of a potential agreement emerged at the weekend, have ended a controversial period in the club's recent history.
