Yanga-Mbiwa completes Newcastle switch

Newcastle, England (Sports Network) - Montpellier defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has completed his much-anticipated move to English Premier League club Newcastle for an undisclosed fee, it was announced Tuesday.

The 23-year-old came through the Montpellier ranks and went on to make over 200 appearances in his six years with the Ligue 1 outfit.

"It is an honor to be able to come to Newcastle United and have the chance to play in the Premier League," Yanga-Mbiwa told the club's official website.

Yanga-Mbiwa has put pen to paper on a five-and-a-half-year deal to help solidify Newcastle's backline as the Magpies try to avoid relegation.
