RMC and Yahoo Sport FR report that Russian side Krasnodar have agreed a €12m fee with St Étienne to sign French international attacking midfielder Rémy Cabella.
The deal includes another €1.5m in bonuses.
The former Marseille & Newcastle man has agreed personal terms over a 3-year contract that were financially too good to turn down. €3m a year net, €9m over three years, three times what he is currently earning at St Étienne.
Les Verts have moved quickly to replace him, striking a €4m deal with Real Betis to sign Ryad Boudebouz. The Algerian international will return to Ligue 1 after spells at Montpellier & Sochaux.
Boudebouz will arrive in France tomorrow to undergo a medical. Toulouse had been after him.
