His name iz Papiss DEMBA Cisse and he haz signed from Jawman club Freiburg for a reported fee of £7.5 million.
Like Demba Ba he iz on African Nations Cup duty for Senegal and so won't be available to play for a while yet.
This season he has scored nein (sorry!) NINE! goals in the Bundesliga to tek hiz total to 37 goals in 65 starts! (This compares favourably with his namesake who scored 37 times in 97 appearences for Hoffenheim before hiz move to Tyneside!)

Papiss Cesse haz revealed the 'lightnin' pace' of hiz move to NUFC from Bundesliga side Freiburg.
The African was determined to make the move to St James' Park, and travelled through the neet in order to make it happen and become The Toon's new number 9.
Cisse said today, "It's been very quick!---An agreement was only finalised between the two clubs at '8 bells' last night<(or words to that effect!) and then I headed to Newcastle.
I was told to be at the airport at 10pm so I had little opportunity to do much"
In otha news, Wrexham's game against Brighton last neet was caalled off because of a frozen pitch and they will try again toneet @ '7:15 bells' to see just who plays The Toon in the next roond of the FA Cup!------We wait with 'baited breath' to see just where we will be gannin @ '5:15 bells' on the 28th of this month? (the game will be live on ESPN)
