Newcastle United began their attempt to bolster their squad in the January window with the acquisition of midfielder Henri Saivet from Boreaux for a transfer fee of £4.5m.
The Magpies dip into the Ligue 1 talent pool yet again, though Saivet was born in Senegal and plays for their national team. He has been plying his trade in France since his youth academy days though. Saivet is 25 years old and can play on either wing of an attacking midfield but has flourished mostly in a central role as the No. 10. There isn't much early buzz from Newcastle supporters with this signing as they fight to stave off relegation. They have seen the likes of Florian Thauvin, Emmanuel Riviere and Yoan Gouffran come over from France only to disappoint, though to be fair, signings like Yohan Cabaye and Moussa Sissoko have found success at St. James'. It is likely that Saiver will slot in alongside Sissoko and Georginio Wijnaldum in the attacking three though Wijnaldum has been the preferred No. 10 before this signing.
