Newcastle United's French Foreign Legion are settling into life on Tyneside.
The Magpies have signed five French players since the January transfer window opened and they were all training with their new team-mates this morning.
Newcastle say that they have probably finished their business in this transfer window, but over at Sunderland, manager Martin O'Neill says that they are still looking for new arrivals.
