Follow the action for North East clubs as it unfolds here:

  • 9:30am - Olivier Kemen

Newcastle teenager Olivier Kemen has completed a permanent move to French club Lyon.

The 19-year-old midfielder, who joined the Magpies from Metz during the summer of 2013, has returned to his native country for an undisclosed fee.

Kemen, a youngster purchased for his potential, was a regular at Under-21 and youth level, but did not make a first team appearance during his time on Tyneside.

  • 10:38am - Jonás Gutiérrez

Former Newcastle midfielder Jonás Gutiérrez is moving to Spanish top-flight side Deportivo La Coruna on a free transfer.

Before leaving the club the 32-year-old criticised owner Mike Ashley on social media.
