Palace & PSG Reach Agreement Over Cabaye Transfer

French midfielder, Yohan Cabaye is set to reunite with his former manager, Alan Pardew at Crystal Palace after a fee in the region of £10m was agreed between the Premier League club and Paris St-Germain (PSG).

Cabaye, 29, started just 13 games for PSG last season after joining from Newcastle for £19m.

A fee of about £10m, which could rise to £13m plus add-ons, has now been agreed between Newcastle and the Ligue 1 side.

Cabaye has also reached an agreement in principle with the Eagles and the midfielder is expected to undergo medical in the next 48 hours.

Upon completion of the deal, he would become Palace’s most expensive signing ever, taking down the record previously held by James McArthur following his £7m move from Wigan.
