The 29-year-old posted on his account that he had completed a move to the Magpies, claiming to have signed a four-year deal.
He wrote: “On my way to Newcastle, having medical then sign a 4 years contract.Thank you all for your support you’ve been outstanding !!!!”
However, Kébé clarified it was a joke.
“Oups i thought if you’re french and play football u just pop in to Newcastle and sign a contract – Not a chance of leaving #LoveReadingFc”
