Newcastle United have completed the signing of teenage prospect Olivier Kemen.

The 16-year-old France Under-17 international midfielder has joined from Metz.

Speaking earlier this month, Kemen said: "Newcastle is a big team, and they look after young players. If they agree everything with Metz, I will join them.

"There are some good French speaking people there, so I can settle there fine on the guidance of everyone there."

Newcastle have also confirmed that Paul Dummett, Conor Newton - both of whom were on loan at St Mirren last season - Michael Richardson, Alex Gilliead plus goalkeepers Jak Alnwick and Jonathan Mitchell have all signed new deals.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
