Remy Cabella: Was a top target for Newcastle in January

Highly-rated midfielder Cabella was strongly linked with a move to Newcastle United in January, and reports suggest the Premier League club will rekindle their interest when the transfer window re-opens.

Former France U21 international Stambouli has also been drawing admiring glances from afar, and he will definitely be on the move in the near future.

Both men are tied to contracts at Montpellier and will command a fee, which will help their current employers in the pursuit of replacements, with the option of making M'Baye Niang's loan from AC Milan into a permanent deal set to be explored.

Club chairman Louis Nicollin told Midi Libre: "Stambouli's future? That is sorted, he will leave. Probably Cabella as well.

"About Niang, we will see with AC Milan because it will be expensive. But if coach Rolland Courbis wants to keep him..."

Nicollin has also revealed that Montpellier are exploring the option of cancelling an agreement with Dynamo Kiev regarding the 2013 sale of Morocco international Belhanda.

The Ukrainian side have yet to complete full payment for the midfielder and that could mean that he is sent back to France and freed to complete another move elsewhere.

"Kiev have not paid the whole transfer fee," said Nicollin.

"We have notified UEFA, so it is possible that Younes could come back and be sold somewhere else."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
