As I said back in June and earlier today.
A rather less terse statement than the Offical site had used yesterday.
"We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Newcastle United for the transfer of Sebastien Bassong to the Club, following the player successfully completing a medical examination and agreeing personal terms.
The defender moved to St James' Park in July 2008 from Metz where he made 79 appearances in three seasons.
The 23-year-old played 34 times for Newcastle last season in his debut campaign in the Premier League."
Now, to get his two game suspension out of the way.
