Remy Cabella happy he chose Newcastle

Remy Cabella is happy with his first weeks at Newcastle United.

Cabella moved to St James' Park from Montpellier earlier in the summer, having been linked with the cub since the January transfer window.

He told France Football: "It was the best choice for me, the club that I needed.

"Everyone here, the club, the staff, the coach, is trusting me. They did their very best to sign me, first in January and then this summer again.

"There were others clubs interested, but I only had Newcastle in my mind.

"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 have played at Newcastle, like Yohan Cabaye, Loic Remy, Mathieu Debuchy and Moussa Sissoko, and I 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'."
