Montpellier President Louis Nicollin has this evening confirmed Get French Football News reports that attacking midfielder Remy Cabella has not been approached by Newcastle, nor have the Ligue 1 side.
British media outlets have been insistent in the past days that discussions have occurred between Newcastle and Montpellier for the transfer of Remy Cabella, something that we denied today.
‘LouLou’ as he is affectionately known had the following to say:
“Contact with Newcastle (for Cabella) – I don’t even speak English! There is absolutely no contact with this club”
The President did however reiterate that Remy Cabella will be allowed to leave Montpellier this summer if an acceptable offer is made. He has discussed this with Cabella after offers from Marseille last summer were rebuffed by the player who proved his loyalty to the seaside club.
Either way, we reiterate that, to date, no club has approached Montpellier for Remy Cabella regarding this transfer window.
