Newcastle sign Riviere

16 July 2014 10:32

Newcastle have completed the signing of French striker Emmanuel Riviere from Monaco for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old becomes Alan Pardew's fifth signing of the summer and offers much-needed support up front after the departures of loan signings Loic Remy and Luuk de Jong and the out-of-contract Shola Ameobi.

"I'm very happy to be here at Newcastle," Riviere told the club's official website. "When the club spoke to me I said yes immediately. It was an easy decision because Newcastle is a big club with great fans and a good stadium."
