While it is still a case of believe it when you see it, a Remy Cabella transfer to Newcastle does appear to be inching closer…if you believe the player’s agent and father.

The two positions filled by the same person!

remy cabellaCabella ‘s father is quoted by actuafoot/fr as saying;

“Yes we’re in negotiations with Remy and yes he will join Newcastle this winter.”

There have also been reports in the French press linking Montpellier with an unknown Serbian player as Remy Cabella’s potential replacement.

A 7pm kick-off tonight sees Sochaux host Montpellier in a real relegation six-pointer, bottom against third bottom.

If Remy Cabella is included in the team then it will surely dilute the substance of the Cabella to Newcastle story/rumours, unless you want to believe that if he is included it is to try and give Montpellier the three points as a leaving present.
