Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc has confirmed his interest in Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye, but also revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are in the race for his signature.
According to the London Metro, the north London club have been considering a bid for the France international for some time, who has attracted admiring glances from a number of different suitors, including the reigning Ligue 1 champions.
Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is yet to make any comment to confirm or deny his reported interest in bringing Cabaye to White Hart Lane, whereas Blanc - who succeeded Carlo Ancelotti at Parc des Princes earlier this summer - has been much more vocal in his scouting of the 27-year-old.
"He (Cabaye) is a very good player. I have not changed my mind (about him)," the former France boss told le10sport.com.
"For now, he is at Newcastle. [But] I have also read he is in Tottenham's plans."
Blanc's comments earned him a ticking off from Newcastle manager Alan Pardew, who criticised the PSG coach for trying to unsettle one of his star players.
However, that has not deterred the 47-year-old from speaking about Cabaye again, presenting three possible clubs that the player could turn out for in 2013/14.
"Newcastle, Tottenham or Paris – I hope he will still be at a big club in September," he added.
