The Frenchman, who is on the standby list for Didier Deschamps's World Cup squad after an impressive season in Ligue 1, sees the Magpies as "a good club" and has an agreement with his current side to leave should the right offer come in.

Alan Pardew's side have several French players already on their books and have been linked with a move for Cabella, though the 24-year-old is also interested in the idea of joining a more prestigious local team, with Olympique de Marseille among the names mentioned.

"I have an arrangement with Montpellier in case an interesting offer pops up," he told Telefoot. "I'll reflect quietly about it to make the best decision.

"Newcastle is a good club in England. We will see what the coach will tell me. I have to do the right choice for Euro 2016.

"I could also stay in France. OM is one of the great French clubs and great French clubs interest me."
