FLOP ... Romain Amalfitano.

NEWCASTLE United midfielder Romain Amalfitano has completed a move to French side Dijon on a three-year deal.

The move brings to an end a disappointing two years on Tyneside for the 24-year-old, who made just five senior appearances for United.

He spent last season on loan at Dijon, who play in the French second tier, and they have now opted to make the deal permanent.
