Magpies land French starlet

The France Under-18 international arrives at the club on a free

transfer after rejecting Sochaux’s offer of a contract. Moyo had

been linked with moves to Manchester United, Ajax and Bordeaux, but

Newcastle have won the race to sign the midfielder. The

18-year-old, who has signed a four-year deal on Tyneside, was named

as a substitute during Newcastle reserves’ 2-1 win over Wolves.

Moyo is expected to stay in the club’s reserves so that he can

continue his education under the gaze of Peter Beardsley and Steve

Stone before pushing for a spot in Chris Hughton’s first team.
