Remy Cabella Expected On Tyneside Today – Video

The Chronicle (Neil Cameron) is reporting that Remy Cabella is due at Newcastle today to discuss terms with Newcastle’s Managing Director Lee Charnley on a six year deal being offered by Newcastle United.

Remy Cabella – secret signal – Newcastle are number one

And after several sunny days in a row in Newcastle, it’s now overcast and raining this morning (unfortunately), as presumably Cabella jets in to meet with Charnley.

We are not surprised there is some nervousness among Newcastle fans that there may be  a last minute hitch in the deal, after what happened with Loic Remy 18 months ago, when a deal had been verbally agreed between Marseilles and the player – yet he eventfully flew to London and signed for QPR at the very last minute.

But the sooner this deal is wrapped up and completed and Remy Cabella signs along the dotted line – the better it will be for everybody concerned.

And if it can be completed today that would be great – and it seems the lad is a really skillful player.

Here’s some video of Cabella doing the rounds on the Internet at the moment.

It could be a good sign that Newcastle are now willing to spend some of the money they have available, and we almost doubled our first offer of only £6.5M for Cabella – so we hope it’s a new beginning at Newcastle and that Mike Ashley will spend the considerable money that is now flowing into the club’s coffers.

Notice that word hope in the above sentence.

Comments welcome.

    Janmaat showed lots of energy down the Dutch right last night, played some nice one twos and put a few decent balls into the box with one being an assist for the goal. He’ll be more defensive minded than Debuchy but he won’t panic when crossing the half way line like Simpson did.

    Riviere won’t be signed as the main striker. That will be one from lacazette, Remy or ba.

    If we don’t get grenier, I think wijnaldum could be the one to go for, can play anywhere across midfield, runs at players, good on the ball. Scores goals, tracks back and is decent at passing and crossing. Plus he’s the type Ashley could make a big profit on.

    From previous post, you reckon Satka could be the real deal? How long you reckon before he is ready to step up?

    so colback/perez/siem and cabella so far with debs/shola/vukic out.

    think thats improved us a lot overall even with losing deb’s who i still reckon was one of the best rb’s we’ve had.

    i’d still love a striker/rb and cb wich will make it even better but tbh 2 years without a signing and i’m getting fairly impressed with transfers so far.

    Newcastle United could spend over £20million this week on three new players.

    Remy Cabella is due to put pen to paper on a six year deal today, while Feyenoord right-back Daryl Janmaat and AS Monaco striker Emmanuel Riviere could become Newcastle players before the squad travel to New Zealand at the end of this week.

    We understand that Newcastle managing director Lee Charnley is set to meet Cabella over the weekend to personally hand him his six-year contract.

    Some supporters were worried that a last-minute unexpected hitch would derail the long-waited transfer.

    However, Montpellier manager Rolland Courbis has revealed that the deal is now all-but completed after several days of negotiations.

    He said: “It is 90% there, not yet 100%. It is not yet complete, but certainly on the way to getting there. Talks are ongoing, especially regarding bonus payments.

    “I am not worried about it. Laurent and Louis (Nicollin, the club owners) were right to reject their initial, vexing offer which was ridiculous.”

    The deal is worth €16m-plus future bonus payments, the biggest transfer the club has made since Michael Owen was brought for £16m back in the 2005/06 season.

    Cabella is the fourth signing of the summer following the arrival of Sunderland midfielder Jack Colback, Tenerife striker Ayoze Perez and most recently Ajax playmaker and captain Siem de Jong

    Feyenoord last week rejected a €6 million (£4.7m) bid from Newcastle for Daryl Janmaat.

    The Dutch club want £6m for him, however, that deal is far from dead and the player himself is keen to move to Tyneside.

    Mathieu Debuchy needs to be replaced and with Davide Santon reportedly out of action for three months with a knee injury, the need for another full-back is obvious.

    It emerged last week that the club had expressed an interest in Emmanuel Rivière, the 24-year-old AS Monaco strike.

    And while the Cabella has taken priority over the last few days, Monaco believes Newcastle will make a bid for a player they would allow to leave for a fee close to £7m.

    Newcastle still need to sign more players, but with four now arrived and perhaps at least one more to be done over the next few days, the club have said followed through with their promise to spend money in this transfer widow.

    The club raised over £30m from the sale of Yohan Cabaye and Debuchy, so there is plenty of money left in the bank.

    If were after Gomez Dier and Coulibaly then doubt the confidence is there that all these lads would step up
    I know Pardew had talked up Satka and Good so could see them coming through
    Streete seems to of been on the fringes for ages now but seems a bit Vuckic like when it comes to his fitness

    Still a lot of money to be investing in one player mate when some still feel that Ashley only wants survival in the PL.
    We just need 1-2 Quality Forwards brought in and I don’t see why we cant challenge for Europe next season.
    Siem and Cabella are just pure class and without being disrespectful to our current crop of midfielders, these 2 lads are a step up in the right direction

    bloody hell its a lot
    they will be hoping to get 30+mill for him in a couple of years
    read some some stuff saying he is the new ginola and other bit building him up I would air on the side of caution till at least jan with him none of our frenchies have come in and not needed 6mnths or more to settle

    Beermonkey, I thought it was very pleasing to hear this player compared to a young David Ginola – Ginola was a fantastic player at NUFC so to get another, evidently just as good, has to be brilliant news.

    Ginola was like a breath of fresh air when he joined, some silky skills although he could go missing on occassions – however his skills made him a legend on Tyneside and he still is.

    If the new signing is half as good as Ginola, we have got a great player on our hands now!!

    Agree totally mate. Expecting Cabella to come in and perform miracles straight away is setting the lad up for a massive fall from grace.
    One good thing I am impressed with is that we are getting our targets in early, Giving them time to at least bond and acclimatise to there new home.
    Again I preach how important it is to bring in an out and out forward.
    Tads put a good case forward for Demba to come back in to the fold next season as in what he actually offers as a forward compared to Remy. And I wouldn’t think we would have to pay much more than 5-6 mill to bring him back home

    Newcastle are understood to have came to an official agreement with Feyenoord for the signing of Daryl Janmaat today. #NUFC
    Oh yeah baby it just keeps getting better.
    By all accounts the player is keen to join which again is nice to hear, Rather than being a 3-4 choice as being suggested by some players we are linked with

    its not a problem infact its exciting to think what he could do for us
    a lot of fans build up players from what they read and clips of the best bits on utube
    if comes in and does the business straight away great but chances are he will need time to settle
    the way he is being built up if he don’t perform how long before he is written of labelled pardewed

    he needs time to settle lets not heap extra pressure on him and give him the time needed was my point

    I watched the second half of last nights game only because I wanted to see how Janmaat performed.

    He looked very good. He looked very quick and composed on the ball.

    I guess being Dutch he must be very fluent in English and with three countrymen already at the club should have no difficulty fitting into the club and area.

    things looking good on the player front

    don’t think we would get remy think his options are spurs arsenal (maybe) Liverpool

    ba wouldn’t be sold to any of the above teams so we have a chance with him if he would come back
    but didn’t jose ask him to stay after eto left

    TADS, croftus,

    You would think Collo should be mentoring the CBs coming through, I mean it’s such a specialist position to learn your trade surely better than sending someone up to jock land.

    Still shocked and angry with the handling of MYM. So if/when Colo gets injured, our first choice pair is Willo & Taylor LOL! Gimme a break!
    MYM best defender we’ve had since Woodgate just needed time to adapt (remember Colo in his 1st season?)
    Needed a decent run in the team and when he got it, started to look good with Willo. BUT then dropped in favour of Colo and we start shipping goals for fun THEN he gets played at RB….
    How do you think the lad must feel playing in his proper position & performing well then DROPPED and given bit-part games out of position in a losing team low on morale?
    The lad is quality (see his French national debut?) and we would eventually have seen that, but just totally mis-managed. Bon chance to him.

    Beer @ 19 – Couldn’t agree more mate – he needs the time to settle and adapt, it took Ginola quite a while as it did with Colo and Debuchy. If people expect an instant Shearer they will be disappointed, but I think he will prove to be an outstanding signing.

    Hopefully, we will be adding a few more in the next 2 weeks – we still need a Cabaye replacement, a FB, a Striker and a CB to cover existing weaknesses!!

    Janmaat willo colo haidara
    Colback tiote
    Cabella sdj riviere

    Would look very attacking but with a solid enough defence to support it.

    However 433 or 451 might be the way to go if those deals come off. If clement grenier joins to we would have a seriously dangerous side. Still like a new centre back though.


    Janmaat willo colo haidara
    Colback grenier tiote
    Cabella ba riviere

    Or even

    Janmaat willo colo haidara

    Cabella sissoko grenier colback/tiote auxiere


    That would be ideal. Santon would replace haidara when fit. A new centre back to replace willo as well.

    MAIL ON SUNDAY: Manchester United will listen to offers for Wilfried Zaha, Bebe, Anderson, Marouane Fellani, Danny Wellbeck and Javier

    The only two I would fancy would be Zaha and Fellani as both have a lot to prove and would be determined to do that. I feel both were victims of circumstances that were outside of their control at ManU.

    We should always have four central defenders as history shows that the club cannot rely on all four being fit and available for selection all the time.

    It would be very foolish and very risky to dump MYM without an adequate replacement which doesn’t appear a priority at the moment. It has been suggested that MYM would be part of the deal to get a top striker but that doesn’t reduce the risk.

    It seems that something isn’t quite right. There must be something behind the scenes that we don’t know about. If Graham Carr has spent three years scouting Cabella he must have seen MYM plenty of times as they were in the same team. A player doesn’t go off that quickly. Most fans would have got rid of Colo in his first season. It does take time to adapt, some players more so than others, even English players. Perch was useless to begin with. Williamson wasn’t all that good either.

    Hope MYM stays.

    Remy – ?

    Imagine if we sign all of them…. think someone would have to pinch me

    Would be great to see Cabella join the club, just as long as we don’t have to lose Hatem.

    Any 6 year contract offer at NUFC is basically an 18mth contract to play plus an option to stay on at the club for a further 4.5 years if he’s NOT a success. Fact.

    I know a lot on here don’t agree but I think welbeck would be a great addition.

    He’d be that 15 prem goal striker we need. A much safer bet than rivière.

    Add lacazette to that and we’d have a very formidable strike force.

    I’d prefer Ba and Remy but I think the other 2 are far more probable.

    I agree that caveat emptor with regards to ManU but Obertan was not a regular first choice, even on the substitutes bench !

    Possibly with the exception of Zaha nearly all the others have played plenty of times in the Premiership, certainly Wellbeck and Hernandez. I think Fellani was tarred with the same brush as Moyes.

    Remy we all know he is after the and Ashley won’t give him that kind of wage
    Lacazette apparently going else where
    The rest are possible and quality fingers crossed
