French Ligue 1 side Paris St Germain have agreed a deal to sign Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye for £19million, with the Frenchman in Paris today for his medical.
PSG tabled a first offer of £14million for the French midfielder, which was quickly rejected by the Magpies.
However, with Newcastle manager Alan Pardew telling the press at the weekend that Cabaye's future was by no means secure, the move probably should not come as too much of a surprise for the manager or fans at the Tyneside outfit.
Cabaye has been a key player for Newcastle United, since his signing from Lille in 2011, at the start of the Magpies' French Revolution'.
He has made a total of 79 appearances, scoring 17 goals, and creating many others. His fierce shot, defensive tenacity and wonderful passing vision will be sorely missed by Newcastle, who with just three days remaining of the January transfer window, probably will not have time to find a suitable replacement.
