The Star is reporting that Newcastle United are considering a move for former central midifleder Yohan Cabaye, and that we will try to bring him on loan to Newcastle for next season.
Yohan could be a decent loan signing for us, but maybe PSG would prefer a permanent deal this summer for the 38 times capped French International.
Yohan Cabaye – Newcastle trying for loan deal
It’s been a terrible move for Yohan since he left Newcastle eighteen months ago, and he’s found it difficult to get a starting place at PSG but he pushed for the move away from the north-east once PSG came after him, but his career has gone backwards ever since.
It seems that Newcastle have been in contact with the players’ agents and talks are not at an advacned stage.
It would cost Newcastle around £2.5M for the loan deal and Newcastle want some help with what are now his huge wages at £85K/week.
There are other clubs after Yohan who want a permanent deal such as West Ham and Crystal Palace, so we’d be surprised if Newcastle could get the loan deal agreed with PSG.
West Ham would seem like a good option for him, with PSG wanting around £11M for Yohan, which is still high given he’s 29, but he has shown he can play well in the Premier League at Newcastle.
While on Tyneside for two and a half seasons he scored 18 goals in 93 appearances, and in Paris he’s played 53 times with 3 goals.
We’d be very surprised if Yohan Cabaye ends up at Newcastle on loan next season.
