Newcastle-target Cabella set to quit Montpellier
Montpellier midfielder Remy Cabella, who had been targetted by English Premier League side Newcastle this season, announced Saturday that he will quit the Ligue 1 side at the end of the season.
Cabella had been touted for a move to St James' Park in January following Yohan Cabaye's departure to Paris Saint-Germain but a bid was rejected by the Ligue 1 club.
Montpellier president Louis Nicollin had however reportedly promised the 24-year-old he could leave in June despite his contract running until June 2016.
"This evening final match at the Mosson (Montpellier's home ground)," Cabella said on his Twitter account without revealing his future plans.
The former France youth international scored 14 goals this season despite a mediocre performance by his team who are 14th in Ligue 1.
He helped Montpellier to their first ever Ligue 1 title ever in the 2011-12 season.
