Gabriel Obertan doesn’t view his move from Manchester United to Newcastle as a step down after completing his £5m switch earlier today.

The dashing winger found his opportunities of first team football at Old Trafford limited, and is looking forward to playing regular football at the highest level.

He said: “I know it won’t be easy to hold down a place in the side because there is a quality group of players here at Newcastle.

“I am hoping for a fresh start and I am coming here with a lot of ambition and hunger to prove I can perform at this level.

“It is sad to leave a club of Manchester United’s stature, but I am not losing anything by signing for Newcastle.”

Toon boss Alan Pardew added: “It is good news for us and Gabriel is a player I have wanted for some time.

“He has pace and power and his versatility will be important for us, especially with Wayne Routledge moving on.”
