YOHAN Cabaye has recommended Newcastle United to Remy Cabella.

Cabella is among the club’s potential summer targets.

Newcastle tried and failed to sign Montpellier’s attacking midfielder in January in the wake of Cabaye’s £20m sale to Paris Saint-Germain.

And United renew their interest in the 24-year-old, who told French TV show Telefoot he had spoken about the club with Cabaye.

“I have an agreement with the club that I can leave if a good offer presents itself,” said Cabella, who is on France’s standby list for the World Cup.

“I will think with an open mind before making my decision.

“Newcastle is a good English club. I will see what my coach and club tells me.

“I need to make the right choice with regards to Euro 2016. I could also stay in France.

“Marseille is one of France’s big clubs and there are big French clubs interested in me.”

Midfielder Cabaye also sold defender Mathieu Debuchy on a move to Newcastle in January last year.

And Cabella will be mindful that Cabaye’s international career flourished while he was at United.
