The former France Under-21 international has joined the Magpies on a five-year deal after failing to establish himself as a Manchester United regular in two seasons at Old Trafford.
"Gabriel is a player I've watched for the last couple of seasons since he arrived at Manchester United," Newcastle boss Alan Pardew said.
"He has great pace and excellent technique and he has improved his power in the last 12 months and is ready now to make a real impact in the Premier League," he added.
