Newcastle complete their first signing of the summer

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.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
