Newcastle United decorate their club canteen with French flags in order to make their new players feel at home.

Newcastle United are determined to make their new French signings feel at home by temporarily re-decorating the club's canteen.

The North-East side raided the French league by signing Mathieu Debuchy, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Yoan Gouffran, Moussa Sissoko and Massadio Haidara in the January transfer window.

Magpies striker Sammy Ameobi posted a photo on Twitter of the club's canteen with France national flags draped on the walls and a caption which read: "We're really making an effort to impress the new guys."

The 20-year-old later tweeted: "Even did a French v rest of the world in training this morning...we smashed them 5-0 #thatsawkward"

Meanwhile, Newcastle are currently four points clear of the relegation zone in the Premier League table.
