NEWCASTLE, England (AP) — Newcastle midfielder Romain Amalfitano has joined French club Dijon on loan for the rest of the season.

The 24-year-old Amalfitano joined the Magpies last summer from Reims but hardly played for the Premier League side, making four appearances last season, all in the Europa League.

Amalfitano's brother, Morgan, joined West Bromwich Albion on loan from Marseille during the transfer window.
