Olivier Bernard claims he has not given up hope of playing for Newcastle again, despite moving to Southampton on transfer deadline day.
The French full back claims he opted to sign for Saints after Magpies chief Graeme Souness told him he would be forced to play second fiddle to Celestine Babayaro.
Bernard's deal with Newcastle was due to expire in the summer so he severed his ties with The Magpies on Monday and penned a five-month contract with Saints.
