Newcastle midfielder Romain Amalfitano has joined French Ligue 2 side Dijon on loan for the season.

The 24-year-old Frenchman arrived at St James' Park on a free transfer from Reims last summer.

However, Amalfitano made just four Europa League appearances, including one start, for Alan Pardew's side.

The former Evian midfielder has not featured for Newcastle since a 1-1 draw with Portuguese side Maritimo in November 2012.
