French midfielder Yohan Cabaye has flown into Tyneside for medical ahead of his anticipated move to Newcastle. The Lille star has already agreed personal terms and could be officially unveiled in a few days.
The 25 year old has recently been away with the France national team and started their friendly win against Poland. If Cabaye passes his medical then he will become Alan Pardew’s first signing of the summer. It remains to be seen if his Lille team-mate Gervinho will also move to the north-east. The Ivorian is believed to be attracting a number of Premier League, including the Magpies.
