SHEFKI Kuqi is flying high after making a shock move to Newcastle.

The 34-year-old former Owls striker, well known for taking to the air in his goal celebrations, was a free agent after leaving Swansea by mutual consent. He says: “It’s a great opportunity. I am really proud.”

Kuqi, pictured after scoring for the Swans, hit 19 goals for the Owls in 62 starts and six outings as a sub, between January, 2002 and September, 2003.
