Gateshead have taken former Newcastle United striker Wesley Ngo Baheng on trial following his release from St James' Park at the end of last season.

The 21-year-old Frenchman, who failed to make an appearance for the Magpies first-team, made his Gateshead reserve debut at home to Grimsby on Wednesday.

"I want to play in English football," Baheng told the Gateshead website.

"With Gateshead now a professional outfit and a Tyneside club it would be a good move for me."

Baheng added "I will train with Gateshead and play again for the reserves against Lincoln City on Monday and we'll take it from there."

Tynesiders boss Ian Bogie said: "We were aware of Baheng's availability in the summer but he has been in France and he's played some behind closed doors games for some big sides abroad.

"I've seen him play a few times at Newcastle and he's back in the area so we will take a look at him.

"He was certainly impressive in the first half and showed good movement."
