Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez has been speaking to the press ahead of the new Championship season.
He's warned that the championship will not be as easy as everything thinks...and they'll need to make sure they treat every team with respect.
Newcastle take on Fulham at Craven Cottage tomorrow (FRI 5th) as they kick off their Championship campaign.
Midfielder Mohamed Diame has become Newcastle United's latest arrival, (and the second in one afternoon) after signing from Hull City for an undisclosed fee.
The 29-year-old Senegal international has agreed a three-year deal at the Club and becomes the eighth player to join the Magpies' first team squad this summer.
Diame began his career with French side Lens, before moving to Spain, where he turned out for Linares and Rayo Vallecano.
He joined Wigan Athletic in August 2009 and has spent the last seven years in England, turning out for the Latics, West Ham United and Hull City.
Last season he scored the only goal in the Championship play-off final at Wembley, as the Tigers booked their place back in the Premier League.
At international level, Diame has won 28 caps since making his senior debut in March 2011, and featured for his country at the 2012 Olympics.
"Mohamed is a strong, attack-minded player with a lot of fight and determination to his game.
"He is also someone who will provide the team with goals and assists from midfield.
"He has good experience of the Championship and the fight needed to win promotion, which will be important for us."
Newcastle United have completed the signing of Republic of Ireland international defender Ciaran Clark.
The 26-year-old joins from Aston Villa for an undisclosed fee and has put pen to paper on a five-year deal at St. James' Park.
