Newcastle United signed Remy Cabella
Newcastle United have completed the signing of the French international Remy Cabella
Cabella had been a target of Newcastle for sometime, with Alan Pardew believed to have made an offer for him in the previous January transfer window.
The France international jetted into Tyneside from his post-World Cup finals holiday in Corsica on Sunday, 48 hours after Montpellier president Louis Nicollin had revealed that a deal was all but done.
Cabella has signed a six year deal at St. James’s Park and becomes the clubs fourth summer deal after Siem de Jong, Jack Colback and Ayoze Perez.
Cabella said: “It is great to finally be a Newcastle player.
“This is a move that I really wanted to make as I have heard nothing but good things about Newcastle United from everyone I spoke to.
“I wanted to join a great English club and that is why I have arrived here. I’m looking forward to pulling on the shirt and playing in this magnificent stadium, and I will give this club my maximum.”
Newcastle manager Pardew said: “Remy is a player who has been on our radar for a while and we are delighted to bring him to the club.
“He is a player who I am sure will excite our fans. He has flair, hard work and commitment, and is going to bring a talent, energy and quality to St James’ Park that our supporters will enjoy.
“Remy has great ideas when the ball comes to him, and along with Siem de Jong is going to improve an area where we definitely needed some help.”
