“Valentino is a quality player who’ll add to us in attacking areas of the field, where we need to improve,” said Newcastle manager Steve Bruce.

“He can play in a few positions but he is a natural winger with an excellent delivery. We have worked hard to get him ahead of other clubs, so I’m delighted with what we’ve done. Along with Nabil Bentaleb, he’ll give us strong options.”

Algeria midfielder Bentaleb’s signing, on loan from Bundesliga side Schalke, was announced on Tuesday as Newcastle’s first signing of the January transfer window.
