Cabella relishing bumper Newcastle crowds

The 24-year-old France international arrived at St James' Park from Montpellier on Sunday and he insists he is ready to play in front of more than 50,000 people in the north east
Newcastle United's new signing Remy Cabella says playing in front of big crowds at St James' Park will not faze him.

Only two clubs in the Premier League - Manchester United and Arsenal - boasted greater home support last term than Newcastle, who had an average attendance of over 50,000.

And Cabella, who arrived from Montpellier on Sunday for a fee believed to be in the region of £12 million, believes he will thrive in front of so many people.

"It's something that I love," the 24-year-old told NUFCTV.

"Performing on a big stage is something that I've been looking forward to. And I'm looking forward to doing it in front of the fans.

"I'm here to give the absolute maximum possible, work well with my team-mates in training and on the pitch, and hopefully we can succeed together as a team.

"I'm very happy to be here at Newcastle. I'm looking forward to meeting everybody, the manager, all the other players and I'm going to give this club my maximum.

"It's good to see everybody happy and it makes myself happy to be here."

Cabella is the club's fourth signing of the transfer window, following the arrivals of Ayoze Perez, Jack Colback and Siem de Jong.
