Newcastle strike deal for Montpellier star

Remy Cabella

Newcastle supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern have finally got the news they have been waiting for, courtesy of the Express.

The publication claims the Toon have finally struck a £13million deal with Montpellier for long term target Remy Cabella.

Alan Pardew has been chasing the 24-year-old for more than 12 months, and saw a deal to bring him in as Yohan Cabaye’s replacement fall through in January.

Newcastle had previously had an £8million bid rejected, but are now free to discuss personal terms with the player after making a much improved offer.

Montpellier chief executive Louis Nicollin has fought hard to keep his man, but finally admitted defeat when he revealed: “There is an agreement in place with Newcastle.”

Cabella – who won the French title in 2012 – scored 14 goals last season, and will be hoping to make an immediate impact on Tyneside.

The winger was a part of Didier Deschamps World Cup squad, however he failed to make an appearance in Brazil.

He has previously attracted interest from both Manchester United and Arsenal.
