Newcastle have been heavily linked to Montpellier midfielder Remy Cabella since Yohan Cabaye’s exit.

According to L’Equipe, Newcastle are very close to agreeing a fee with Montpellier, thought to be around €8m.

The 24 year old star, capped by France for the first time this week, scored four goals in the last six games of the season.

Cabella wants a move to the Premier League after netting 14 times this season in Ligue 1.
