Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew said: "Remy is a player who has been on our radar for a while and we are delighted to bring him to the Club.

"He is a player who I am sure will excite our fans. He has flair, hard work and commitment, and is going to bring a talent, energy and quality to St. James' Park that our supporters will enjoy.

"Remy has great ideas when the ball comes to him, and along with Siem de Jong is going to improve an area where we definitely needed some help."

Cabella took to Twitter to share his delight at the move:

Cabella was part of the France squad which reached the quarter-finals of this summer's World Cup in Brazil, and said: "It is great to finally be a Newcastle player.

"This is a move that I really wanted to make, as I have heard nothing but good things about Newcastle United from everyone I spoke to.

"I wanted to join a great English club and that is why I have arrived here. I'm looking forward to pulling on the shirt and playing in this magnificent stadium, and I will give this Club my maximum."

The club's Twitter account broke the news:
