He has agreed a three-year deal in the North East, sacrificing Premier League football with the Tigers to join Rafa Benitez’s side.

He is the Spaniard’s eighth signing of the summer in what has been a busy transfer window for the club so far.

It remains to be seen what role that Diame will have to play in Newcastle United’s team next season.

The Magpies have a raft of options available to them in midfield at this moment in time, meaning Benitez has big decisions to make about his starting line up next season.
