Confusion Surrounds This Newcastle Winger

Newcastle have so far managed to move seven players out and bring in five new (senior) players this summer, but that includes Remy Cabella who we assume has moved to Marseille.

But there has been no official confirmation from either club of the completion of the permanent deal.

We have Remy Cabella down as having moved for around £7.5M and that became automatic once he had played 12 games for Marseille during his loan move last season.

Last season he played 42 times for Marseille with 6 goals and in the one unsuccessful season he had at Newcastle he played 34 times with one goal and two assists.

Remy Cabella – is he now a Marseille player?

The deal could only be completed once the transfer window officially opened on July 1st, but no word on the status of the player from the club – unless he was officially signed during January?

Cabella played in Marseille’s first friendly against Swiss Super League side Lausanne on Tuesday night, which the French club lost 2-1.

On Wikipedia and transfermkt.com web-sites he is down as a Marseille player who moved in 2016 from Newcastle United.

When will Newcastle announce the deal officially?

Here’s the transfer activity at Newcastle so far this summer with the transfer fees being our best estimates.
