Remy Cabella

Newcastle United midfielder Remy Cabella has been linked with a move to Marseille this summer.

Remy Cabella does not want to leave Newcastle United this summer, the attacking midfielder’s father has told L’Equipe.

According to a report in La Provence, the France international wants to leave the Premier League outfit, with French club Marseille interested in signing him on a season-long loan deal.

However, Cabella’s father has made it clear that the 25-year-old intends on remaining at St. James’ Park for the foreseeable future.

“My son is fine in Newcastle,” Hector Cabella told L’Equipe. “He will resume (his duties) with his club on July 1.

“He has the ambition to have a great season to make (the France squad) for Euro 2016. We have held no discussions with OM or anyone.

“He signed for six years (last summer), not to leave after one season.“

Disappointing debut season in Premier League

Cabella joined Newcastle from Ligue 1 club Montpellier in the summer of 2014 and was expected to do great things in the Premier League.

However, the 25-year-old had a rather average season, playing well on certain occasions and leaving much to be desired.

The French midfielder scored one goal and created 37 chances in 31 Premier League appearances in the 2014-15 campaign.

Cabella had a pass accuracy of 83% and a shot accuracy of 46%, and won eight headers, 74 dribbles and 55 tackles.
