Former NUFC midfielder Yohan Cabaye has been crowned the sexiest player in Ligue 1 by magazine Tétu.

In what has become an annual event, today, French magazine Tétu has named former Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye as the sexiest player in Ligue 1. He becomes the fifth player to win the yearly award, but the first from Paris Saint-Germain to be crowned as the league's sexiest player.

The 28-year-old picked up 17% of the vote and pipped Stade de Reims Eliran Atar and Lyon's Fares Bahlouli into second and third place with 13% and 12% of the vote.

Cabaye follows in the footsteps of Adil Rami, Yohann Gourcuff, Arsenal's Olivier Giroud and Benoit Costil as the award's winner. And from below you can see why the Newcastle fans named him "Dreamboat"

Who is your favourite male footballer? Do you agree with Tétu?
