Arsenal target Yohan Cabaye has revealed he desperately wants to play Champions League football again.

The Newcastle midfield maestro has not played in the prestigious European competition since sealing a move to the Premier League in 2011.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger wanted to bring the 27-year-old to the Emirates Stadium in the summer - however his attempts were rebuffed as Newcastle wanted a fee in the region of £20million.

Cabaye, after being distracted by talk of a move to the Gunners, has since knuckled back into life in the North East by featuring in 10 of Newcastle's opening 12 games.

However despite his recent happiness and impressive form, Cabaye has hinted that he may look to leave St James' Park at the end of the season.

Speaking to The Sun, Cabaye said on his desire to play for a club competing in Europe: “I miss the Champions League.

“I’ll finish this season with Newcastle and concentrate on the coming months and then we’ll see.”

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew will be saddened at news that Cabaye has doubts over his long-term future at the club, particularly as Fabricio Coloccini recently revealed he wanted to return to Argentina 'as soon as possible'.
