Remy Cabella joins Newcastle

The midfielder joins the Magpies fromĀ Montpellier.

Remy Cabella has completed his move to Newcastle to hand manager Alan Pardew a massive boost.

The Magpies confirmed on Sunday night that the 24-year-old has signed a six-year contract after sealing his transfer from French club Montpellier for an undisclosed fee.

Cabella, who has been in the club's sights since they tried to sign him as a replacement for Yohan Cabaye in January, becomes Pardew's fourth summer acquisition after Siem de Jong, Jack Colback and Ayoze Perez.

The Frenchman said: "It is great to finally be a Newcastle player. This is a move that I really wanted to make as I have heard nothing but good things about Newcastle United from everyone I spoke to.

"I wanted to join a great English club and that is why I have arrived here. I'm looking forward to pulling on the shirt and playing in this magnificent stadium, and I will give this club my maximum.''

France international Cabella jetted into Tyneside from his post- World Cup finals holiday in Corsica earlier in the day, 48 hours after Montpellier president Louis Nicollin had revealed that a deal was all but done. Newcastle were cautious as they worked to thrash out the remaining details, but their optimism was rewarded when they finally got their man.

Pardew is hoping the attacking flair Cabella and De Jong will bring will help to mitigate for the loss of Cabaye and loan strikers Loic Remy, Luuk de Jong and the out-of-contract Shola Ameobi, while Papiss Cisse continues to battle his way back from injury.

Pardew said: "Remy is a player who has been on our radar for a while and we are delighted to bring him to the club. He is a player who I am sure will excite our fans. He has flair, hard work and commitment, and is going to bring a talent, energy and quality to St James' Park that our supporters will enjoy.

"Remy has great ideas when the ball comes to him, and along with Siem de Jong is going to improve an area where we definitely needed some help.''

The Magpies are still in the market for out and out frontmen, however, and that will be a major focus over the days ahead.

In addition, they are working to find a replacement for Cabella's international team-mate Mathieu Debuchy before allowing Arsenal to push home their interest in the full-back. To that end, they have entered talks with Feyenoord over Holland international defender Daryl Janmaat.
