Newcastle United midfielder Gael Bigirimana has rejoined League One side Coventry City on a permanent deal.

The 22-year-old Burundi international originally moved to the Magpies from the Sky Blues in July 2012 and also had a loan spell back at the Ricoh Arena last season.

Bigirimana made 25 appearances for United in all competitions during his four years on Tyneside but hasn't featured for the first team since a League Cup tie at Morecambe in August 2013.

Fans are preparing for this afternoon's Tyne-Wear derby. Its the first time Middlesbrough and Sunderland have met in the Premier League in seven years.

Sunderland host Middlesbrough at the Stadium of Light and due to the short distance between the clubs, a dedicated football train has been put in place for travelling supporters.

The dry service will leave Middlesbrough at 11.22 and arrive at St Peter's for the Stadium of Light at quarter past twelve.

Officers are also expecting transport links in Sunderland to be busy on Sunday.

Fans are being encouraged to allow plenty of time to make their way to the stadium ahead of kick-off at 1:30pm.
