There is news coming through from France that Montpellier have confirmed an agreement has been reached with Newcastle United for the transfer of their midfielder Remy Cabella, but the midfielder will move in the summer and not this month.
Remy Cabella - will become Newcastle player in the summer
We assume this means that a contract agreement has been reached with both Montpellier on the fee, and with Remy Cabella on his wages and the deal will be completed at the end of the season, and that Cabella will become a Newcastle player on July 1st.
This is what Montpellier Chairman Laurent Nicollin has told the French site Midi Libre:
“We have an agreement with the leaders of Newcastle that I will not reveal,” “But it does not include a departure for Remy before June, it is a certainty.”
We had mentioned last week that if Cabella couldn’t move in January, there was nothing stopping Newcastle from agreeing the deal now, and have it be completed in the summer.
And this is what seems to have happened, and it’s Joe Kinnear’s first signing for Newcastle United.
No word on the fee, but it’s probably between £12M and £14M, and this looks like a good deal for Newcastle United, and well done Joe Kinnear, and it’s good that Mike Ashley has come up with the money.
And with the deal now agree, it seems the news that Remy wanted to join Newcastle was indeed true, and now we need to get a striker in this month, and keep Yohan Cabaye at the club.
Howay The Lads!!
