January arrival Moussa Sissoko insists there is no reason why Newcastle cannot become one of the "best teams in the Premier League".
The France international signed a six-and-a-half year contract with Newcastle following his move from Toulouse.
Newcastle are currently involved in the battle against relegation but Sissoko believes there is huge potential at St James' Park.
He said: "My personal objectives really are to finish off this season as best as we possibly can. I am going to give everything I can so Newcastle finish as high up the league as possible.
"For the future, I want Newcastle to be one of the very best teams in the Premier League. That's my wish and the club's also.
"I have signed here because I love the club. They have some fantastic players.
"Newcastle aren't in the position where they should be at the moment, but I think if we all do well, we will finish as high as possible and really make the team one of the best in England."
