The 31-year old travelled from London to the north-east yesterday after agreeing personal terms as he has been a free agent since leaving Tianjin TEDA in the Chinese Super League where he spent the past two seasons.

Mikel chose a move to England over Roma and Wolfsburg as his wife and two young children were based there.

Mikel played more than 350 games for Chelsea during his 11-year stay at Stamford Bridge winning two Premier League titles, three FA Cups, the League Cup, Champions League and Europa League.
