Published Add your comment

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Yohan Cabaye has hinted at a possible move to Crystal Palace this summer after stating his desire to play under Alan Pardew.

The midfielder was part of the French revolution under Pardew at Newcastle, where he played for two-and-a-half years before moving to PSG in January 2014 for £19 million.

His appearances for the French champions have been at a premium this campaign and the 29-year-old looks certain to depart the club this summer with the Premier League his preferred destination.

Speaking to a French newspaper Cabaye was quoted as saying: “It went very well with Pardew (last time). If I have to make that decision, it will be a pleasure to see my old coach. I enjoy it with him and he does a great job.

“I am in a situation today where I am not getting the game time that I was hoping. The important thing is that I will think carefully and make the best decision. We will see how it evolves in the coming weeks.”

Arsenal are also thought to be interested in the playmaker who may have a difficult choice to make between Champions League football and a reunion with Pardew at Crystal Palace.

Cabaye is likely to be available for a reduced fee of around £10-15 million after making just 22 appearances in France.
