Cabella: France teammates convinced me about Newcastle

Remy Cabella is delighted with his decision to join Newcastle United.

It was a move that he admits was influenced by the other internationals at St James' Park.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "When I came back from the World Cup in Brazil I told my entourage, 'I want Newcastle. I don't care about the rest'.

"During the World Cup I talked with French players that are playing or who have played at Newcastle, like Yohan Cabaye, Loic Remy, Mathieu Debuchy, Moussa Sissoko, and I have only heard good things about the club.

"They made me dream. They told me, 'If you go there, you will make a very good choice'."
