Report: Yohan Cabaye wants West Ham move despite Crystal Palace interest

Crystal Palace and West Ham United are reportedly interested in former Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye.

Former Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye wants to join West Ham United this summer, according to Le Parisien.

It has been reported by the French publication that the former Newcastle star wants to leave PSG, and that he desires to move to West Ham.

According to the report, Crystal Palace have made a bid of €14 million (£9.9m) for Cabaye, but the players want to join the Hammers and is waiting for the right proposal.

Le Parisien has also claimed that London outfit West Ham have made contact with PSG regarding the transfer of the 29-year-old.

Blow for Crystal Palace?

This latest development will come as a blow to Palace, who seem to be keen on signing former Newcastle star Cabaye this summer.

If the player is not interested in joining the Eagles, then perhaps the London outfit should look elsewhere for midfield reinforcements.

As for West Ham, the quality of manager Slaven Bilic’s squad will certainly increase if they are able to sign Cabaye.
