Newcastle have signed Roma striker Seydou Doumbia on loan until the end of the season.

The 28-year-old Ivory Coast international has underwent a medical at the weekend and finalised his switch on Monday afternoon.

Doumbia joined Roma from CSKA Moscow in January last year, but made only 14 appearances, eight of them as a substitute, and scored two goals before heading back to CSKA on loan in August.

The Magpies were awaiting a formal response from the Baggies on Monday morning on what promised to be a long day with Stoke having also registered their interest and Tottenham long-time admirers.

Newcastle have also been monitoring the situations of Chelsea's Loic Remy and Swansea's Bafetimbi Gomis should their approach for Berahino fail, with West Brom insisting the player is not for sale this month.
