â¢ RÃ©my Cabella heads to Marseille on loan for 12 months
â¢ âIt is a big honour to know Newcastle have been after me for such a long timeâ
Newcastle United have signed the Marseille winger Florian Thauvin on a five-year contract. The 22-year-old Frenchman came through a medical on Wednesday and committed to the club until 2020.
As part of the deal to bring Thauvin to St Jamesâ Park, Rémy Cabella heads the other way on a season-long loan, which will become a permanent move next summer. âI am delighted to be a Newcastle United player,â said Thauvin on the clubâs website. âI have come from France to a really big club and am very happy to be here.â
