Henri Saivet: Keen to make an impression at Newcastle

Little-used Newcastle midfielder Henri Saivet has joined Turkish side Bursaspor on a season-long loan deal, the Magpies have announced.

The 27-year-old Senegal international, who has made only eight senior appearances for the club since his arrival from Bordeaux in January 2016, spent the second half of the last campaign on loan at Sivasspor.

A club statement said: “Henri Saivet has joined Turkish Super Lig side Bursaspor on a season-long loan.”

Saivet is contracted to Newcastle to 2021, but the club are likely to allow him to move on next summer should a suitable offer be tabled.
