NEWCASTLE United are closing in on a deal for Montpellier’s Remy Cabella, according to reports in France.

L’Equipe report that United are “close” to agreeing a fee in the region of £6.5m for the attacking midfielder.

Newcastle tried and failed to sign the 24-year-old in the wake of Yohan Cabaye’s January move to Paris Saint-Germain.

And United have renewed their interest in the France international, on Didier Deschamps’s standby list for this summer’s World Cup.
