NEW BOY ... Remy Cabella.

REMY Cabella has been dropped for this afternoon’s game against Swansea City.

Newcastle United’s £7m signing is among the substitutes at the Liberty Stadium (3pm kick-off).

Cabella, among the substitutes, is still adjusting to the pace of English football after his summer move from Montpellier.

And under-pressure manager Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has handed winger Gabriel Obertan a start in his place.

Papiss Demba Cisse also replaces Emmanuel Riviere up front.
