Newcastle United can today confirm the signing of teenage midfielder Mehdi Abeid on a five-year deal.
The 18-year-old arrives from French club Lens, having completed a successful trial at St. James' Park last season.
Abeid has represented France at Under-17 and Under-18 level, and Newcastle reserve team manager Peter Beardsley said: "We are delighted to bring Mehdi to the Club.
"He is a bright, young talent and we think he has an exciting future ahead of him.
"After an impressive trial with us earlier in the year, I'm looking forward to working with Mehdi and developing his talent."
