Gael Bigirimana: "Of course I want to get back and play in the Premier League.

"That is what I came to Newcastle to do."

The midfielder ended the reserves’ 2-1 win over Norwich City on Monday in Willie Donachie’s back four.

Willie Donachie: “I was pleased for Gael.

“His attitude’s always good.

“He always wants to work and improve. He had a very good game.

“He actually ended the game as a central defender, and dealt with everything really well.

“That shows his enthusiasm. He’s small, but he can jump. He did well.”

Alan Pardew: “In and around the first team, he’s been terrific.

“We’re chuffed with him, but we can’t expect him to play the next 17 games for us."
