Gabriel Obertan is set to move from Manchester United to Newcastle United on Monday, the BBC has learned.
The 22-year-old French winger signed for the Old Trafford club from Bordeaux in July 2009 but failed to gain a regular place in the first team.
Obertan made 28 first-team appearances and scored once in regular competition during his time at Manchester United.
That strike came in United's 3-0 win away to Turkish side Bursaspor in the Champions League in November 2010.
Obertan would become the fifth French speaking player to sign for the club during this transfer window, following the arrivals of Demba Ba, Yohan Cabaye, Sylvain Marveaux and Mehdi Abeid.
