Newcastle have completed the signing of Spain Under-21 striker Xisco on a five-year deal from La Liga side Deportivo La Coruna for an undisclosed fee, the club have announced.

The 22-year-old will now join former Depor team-mate Fabricio Coloccini at St James' Park after the Argentinian became the Magpies' most expensive defender in their history last month.

Xisco made his debut for Deportivo at the end of the 2004/05 season before being loaned out to US Vecindario in the following season where he scored 13 times in 27 games.
