Montpellier manager Rolland Courbis last night admitted to our colleagues at RMC that a deal for Remy Cabella to leave the club for Newcastle is close. He had the following to say:
“It is 90% there, not yet 100%. It is not yet complete, but certainly on the way to getting there. Talks are ongoing, especially regarding bonus payments. I am not worried about it. Laurent and Louis (Nicollin) were right to reject their initial, vexing offer which was ridiculous.”
Laurent Nicollin told our colleagues at ML Actu yesterday that a deal was agreed and Football News was informed that a deal worth €16m including bonuses was virtually agreed. The player has yet to agree personal terms with Newcastle at the time of writing.
