Newcastle United have signed up midfielder Ki Sung-yueng on a free transfer following the expiration of his Swansea City deal.

Ki, whose World Cup campaign with South Korea came to an end with a 2-0 victory over Germany earlier this week, has penned a two-year contract at St James’ Park.

The 29-year-old has spent the past six years at Swansea, as well as a season-long spell with Newcastle’s North-East rivals Sunderland, having beforehand made 66 Scottish Premiership appearances north of the border for Celtic.
