The six month transfer saga that shows no signs of abating any time soon, Newcastle are still believed to be in the hunt for Cabella. The 24 year old racked up fourteen goals and five assists in a struggling Montpellier side this season.
In spite of Newcastle’s troubles in 2014, the Frenchman is still believed to be keen on a move to Tyneside. Capable of fulfilling a central or wide role, Pardew will be keen to add Cabella to his ranks if Montpellier can be negotiated down from their lofty £16 million valuation.
However, some Newcastle fans fear that the arrival of De Jong may spell the end of a prospective deal for the Montpellier playmaker.
