Newcastle transfer news: Toon 'agree deal' for £12m Montpellier midfielder Remy Cabella
Frenchman scored 14 goals from attacking midfield last season
Friday 11 July 2014
Newcastle United have reportedly agreed a deal to sign French attacking midfielder Remy Cabella.
According to ESPN, Newcastle have agreed a fee of around £12m with Montpellier.
The 24-year-old has been linked with a move to Tyneside since January and enjoyed an impressive season last year, scoring 14 goals in Ligue 1 from attacking midfield.
Cabella was part of Didier Deschamps' World Cup squad, but failed to make an appearance for Les Bleus in Brazil.
Newcastle have already moved for Ajax playmaker Siem de Jong this summer, who signed on a six-year deal for an undisclosed amount.
Alan Pardew has also added Tenerife striker Ayoze Perez and Sunderland midfielder Jack Colback during this window.
Arsenal are chasing a right back Mathieu Debuchy, but the two clubs are yet to agree a fee for the French defender.
