Remy Cabella: Montpellier playmaker wanted by Newcastle

Newcastle have identified Cabella as one of their prime transfer targets and the player's father recently suggested a deal would be done this month.

However, it now appears likely that the 23-year-old will be moving to St James' Park at the end of the season following confirmation of an agreement from Montpellier chairman Laurent Nicollin.

"We have an agreement with the leaders of Newcastle that I will not reveal," Nicollin told Midi Libre.

"But it does not include a departure for Remy before June, it is a certainty."

The French club have previously suggested that Cabella, who has also been linked with Arsenal and Manchester United, would command a fee in the region of £15million.

Speaking earlier this month, Cabella acknowledged that he would be prepared to consider a move to Newcastle if the two clubs agreed a deal.

"For the moment, in my head, I'm 100 per cent Montpellier," he told French radio station RMC.

"If a proposal comes, it is up to the two clubs to discuss and I will think in terms of that.

"I am not aware of what is happening, I am dedicated to playing and that is the most important."

Asked about a prospective move to the north east, he added: "Newcastle? Well, we realise that at some point we must leave. I think I'm capable of it.

"England interests me, there are good clubs out there. If Montpellier reaches an agreement with an English club that suits me, I'll be happy.

"I think this is my last season with the club and I do not want to leave Montpellier in Ligue 2."

Splendid news. Is it possible he is actually an HBA replacement? And what is with JFK's policy of only signing Remys?? Who's next, Remi Gaillard?!?!

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
