Yohan Cabaye: It’s clear I have to leave PSG this summer

The former Newcastle midfielder has been linked with Crystal Palace, West Ham, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

Speaking to L’Equipe, Yohan Cabaye has admitted that he must leave PSG this summer to ensure that he impresses enough ahead of Euro 2016.

Cabaye said: “I know that if I stay I could do everything, but nothing would change. It's clear [I will have to leave before Euro 2016]. I know this. At the club, they know it too. It will be important to make the best choice possible.

“Sometimes it's better to go backward in order to go forward. I enjoyed myself in England, in a league that works for me.”

These are certainly words which will delight fans of all the clubs interest in Cabaye - and there are a lot of teams who want to sign him.

London24 linked Cabaye with a move to Crystal Palace, whilst the Telegraph reported on interest from West Ham, and the Mirror claimed both Liverpool and Tottenham have been offered his services.

Cabaye impressed during his stay in the Premier League with Newcastle, earning rave reviews after a series of classy performances that brought a wealth of goals and assists.

The French international earned a move to PSG with those performances, but he has found it hard to establish himself in the Ligue 1 outfit’s first-team, with a summer move expected.

The 29-year-old would improve a host of Premier League teams, and the likes of West Ham and Palace would be signalling their ambition if they managed to sign him.

His latest comments show that he is well set on a return to England, and any club who can offer him consistent first-team football will be sure to gain an advantage in the the race to sign a proven star of Premier League football.
