Newcastle United striker Emmanuel Riviere has joined Spanish side Osasuna on loan until the end of the season, with a view to a permanent move.

The 26-year-old arrived on Tyneside from Monaco in July 2014 for around £5m, but has only made 31 appearances, scoring three goals.

Riviere has not featured for Rafael Benitez's side since March.

Osasuna, who are 14th in La Liga, play Benitez's former club Real Madrid next Saturday.
