Crystal Palace have been offered the chance to bring Yohan Cabaye back to Selhurst Park on a free transfer, according to The Mail.

The 33-year-old midfielder played for The Eagles between 2015 and 2018 but bid farewell six months ago, joining Al Nasr after his contract expired.

But, just a quarter of the way through his two year deal with the Saudi side, Cabaye finds himself without a club after being released in January.

 

And The Mail reports that Crystal Palace have been offered the chance to bring the former Lille and Paris Saint-Germain ace back to London before the transfer window shuts next week.

With funds tight at Selhurst Park, Roy Hodgson should give serious consideration to re-signing Cabaye, particularly after he failed to sign another experienced midfielder in John Obi Mikel.

The Gazette reports that Mikel turned down a move to Palace because he could not be guaranteed first-team football and joined Middlesbrough instead.

Crystal Palace paid £10 million to sign Cabaye from PSG four years ago (Guardian) and he quickly became a fans’ favourite with his excellent passing range and superb set-piece delivery.
