The St James' Park sign has been removed at Newcastle United's ground to make way for the venue's new name.

The change from St James' Park to the Sports Direct Arena was announced in November. The club said the change would be temporary to "showcase" the sponsorship opportunity to "interested parties". Derek Llambias, the club's managing director, suggested the change could generate up to £10m a year.
