He wore 46 and toon fans sang about him all through the game.

Sebastien Bassong: 'When I played, I didn't hear the songs.

"Afterwards, when I was told, I was very happy that they sang about me on my debut.

"Maybe I will get a smaller number!

"I am very happy to be at the club - it is a very good thing for me.

"The manager told me he was happy with me against Doncaster, and I was
happy to sign for Newcastle.

"He said he wanted to put me in the team in the future, but he also said if I am ready to play now, I will play. The best players will play.

"Everybody has helped me settle in and feel good at Newcastle.

"I know it is a very, very big club with a very big history.

"Some big players have played for this club and it's like a dream for me here.

"I know I have to work hard to take this chance."
