Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye has admitted that the lure of a move to Paris Saint-Germain would be impossible to turn down if the French champions come calling, preferring a return to Ligue 1 over rumours of interest from Arsenal and Manchester United.

Cabaye saw the Magpies turn down a £10m bid from the Gunners last summer, while persistent speculation linking the French international with PSG failed to produce a concrete offer.

The Les Blues playmaker has shrugged off any disappointment over failing to secure a high-profile exit to help Newcastle earn some eye-catching results this season, including the winning goal in a 1-0 success over Manchester United last Saturday.

The 27-year-old has declared that he would jump at the chance to reunite with former national coach Laurent Blanc at PSG, but insisted that there had been no contact from the Champions League contenders either last summer or in recent weeks.

He told BeIN Sport: "Contact with PSG? Not to my knowledge.

"I know that in January the rumours will start all over again. I'd like to know who does not want to play for Paris Saint-Germain today?

"I feel very good, I want it to be a big season, to try to finish as high as possible [with Newcastle] while thinking about the World Cup next summer."

Magpies boss Alan Pardew was full of praise for his midfield linchpin following his decisive strike at Old Trafford last week, declaring that Cabaye is a "top, top player" who can fulfil his Champions League ambitions at St James' Park.
