Newcastle United could be on the brink of signing Marseille winger Florain Thauvin.

Reports in France this evening claim the Magpies have agreed a £12million deal for the 22-year-old, with Remy Cabella moving in the opposite direction on loan.

Newcastle chief scout Graham Carr is a long-term admirer of Thauvin, and United have enquired about him in the past.

Cabella would move on loan with view to a permanent move, according to the report.
