The Magpies confirmed on Sunday night that the 24-year-old has signed a six-year contract after sealing his transfer from French club Montpellier for an undisclosed fee.
France international Cabella jetted into Tyneside from his post- World Cup finals holiday in Corsica earlier in the day, 48 hours after Montpellier president Louis Nicollin had revealed that a deal was all but done.
Cabella 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."
