Friday morning saw confirmation that Florian Lejeune had left St James Park.

Now Florian Lejeune has met the Spanish media for a press conference to talk about his arrival at Alaves, with Marca carrying these quotes: ” I’m going to give it my all and try to restore the trust they [Alaves] have placed in me on the playing field,” and he talked about his reunion with Pablo Machín .

The deal is a one year loan to Alaves initially, but very unlikely that we will see the Frenchman back at Newcastle, certainly whilst Steve Bruce is still here.

In his first season, the Frenchman made 24 Premier League starts and helped Newcastle finish tenth in the top tier after promotion.

“I’m fine, I’ve done all the preseason with Newcastle and played some friendlies.

“With Rafa Benitez I did play more at Newcastle but last year between injuries and the change of coach [Steve Bruce] I couldn’t play as much as I wanted.

“It is always better to meet [former] colleagues [Lejeune having played alongside Joselu and Pere Pons previously, plus played under Pablo Machin as well before] when you arrive at a new club.
