The Frenchman, on loan from Championship side QPR, has been in excellent form this season, scoring three goals in his first four games but, despite his performances, the Magpies have slipped to consecutive 3-2 defeats against Hull City and Everton, results that have left them 16th in the Premier League.

"I feel I've been a bit unlucky not to get more," he told The Shields Gazette.
"I scored at Everton and then I had a good situation in front of the goal. I kicked it with my left foot.
"It was the same against Hull. When I missed, we missed out on a draw.
"It can happen sometimes but not all the time; we can change things. We'll keep working until we're perfect.
"From a personal point of view, it's a good start but I prefer the team to win and I score goals. I'm a striker and I know my job but we must improve."
