Newcastle sign striker Seydou Doumbia on loan from Roma

Newcastle have completed a loan move for Ivory Coast striker Seydou Doumbia.

The 28-year-old will spend the rest of the season at St James’ Park, subject to being granted a visa, and Newcastle have an option to make his transfer from Roma a long-term one in the summer.

Doumbia, who enjoyed successful spells in Switzerland with Young Boys and in Russia with CSKA Moscow, has struggled to make his mark in Serie A, where he has made only 13 league appearances for the Rome outfit.

He is reported to be a stop gap option for Newcastle who had targeted West Brom’s Saido Berahino, for whom they made a £21m bid on Sunday.
