Remy Cabella - will sign for Newcastle United over weekend

Cabella joined the Montpellier Academy at the age of 14 and his first professional contract at Montpellier in 2009 and in the 2010–2011 season he was sent on loan to Arles-Avignon, where he scored 3 goals in 17 appearances for the Ligue 2 club.

In 2009 he suffered a cruciate ligament injury to his right knee during training in September and was ruled out for the season – and that;s the injury our own Ryan Taylor has suffered over the last two years – Ryan’s had two ACL injuries in fact.

Cabella made his debut for the club in 2011 and since then he has played 115 games with 28 goals and 18 assists for them, and has been a regular starter over the last three seasons.

Remy played 17 times for the France U21 side with four goals, and he was initially named on the stand-by list for France’s 2014 World Cup squad.

And on 27th May of this year he made his international debut when he came on as an 80th minute substitute for (of all people) Yohan Cabaye in a 4–0 win over Norway in a friendly match.

And then on 6th June, he was brough into the French squad for the World Cup when Clement Grenier and Franck Ribery had to withdraw.

In the 2011-2012 season Cabella was part of the team that won the French Ligue 1 for the first time ever and he played 34 times and scored 6 goals in that season.

The 24 year-old is expected to sing sometime over the weekend for Newcastle in a deal said to be worth 12M.

    ~Cabella~~~~~~~~~~SDJ~~~~~~~~~~~Ben Arfa~~

    Great to see us actually signing attacking players!
    Apparantly we’re after Riviere?? Hes very Remy-esque in style (maybe falls short in ability). I was calling for us to sign Riviere when he was at st ettiene, hes hard working, fairly pacey, decent in the air etc but he should be 1 of 2 strikers, not sure hes good enough to be our spearhead and we can’t rely on Cisse! Riviere AND remy would be nice though as hed be the perfect reserve for Remy

    Bonjour messieurs.

    Still room for the french alongside the Tyne river i see!

    What? He can sing too? What can’t this kid do? Honestly, I am getting a bit excited. I would still like to see Atleast one established threat up top come in and Janmaat would be my favorite to replace Debuchy as I feel he is the best RB we are looking at all around (made some great defensive plays for the Dutch in the WC). This isn’t the end but it is progress, which is more than I could say yesterday.

    Niafron
    Apparently so buddy!
    You think it’s a good signing? Personally over the moon to see a deal finally in place for Cabella
    What do you think on Riviere? Not sold him myself, be a good addition but can’t see him being the 15-20 goal CF we desperately need

    What a window so far. :-)

    Add Jaanmat, Riviere and demba ba to the signing’s of De Jong, Colback and Perez, and we look to the start of the season with a cracking side.

    Many said we wouldn’t sign anybody, they were very wrong!

    Cabella is excellent signing.but my dream signing would be Clement Grenier.
    Not know much about Reviere but I think better than Luuk de jong.looks like Lacazatte & co are waiting for big guns playing in the CL,otherwise we already tied him up as nu delegates were there since July 9.good to see we are still active in the market,we are close for janmaat,close for Emanuel,may be for zaha too.
    Looks Pretty much bright future & exciting
