Palace close in on Cabaye

Crystal Palace are closing in on the signing of Paris Saint Germain midfielder Yohan Cabaye, according to the Mail Online.

The Eagles have agreed to pay an initial fee of £10m with the French Champions, while that figure could rise to £12.8m.

West Ham United are still in the race to secure the 29 year old’s services, though with Palace manager Alan Pardew having worked with him for two-and-a-half seasons at Newcastle United.

In two years in the French capital, Cabaye has racked up fifty-three appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals, though he has started just twenty-two games in the league.

Internationally, Cabaye has three goals in thirty-eight appearances for France, with four of those outings coming at last summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil.

Having taken over at Selhurst Park in January, Pardew guided Palace to a tenth place finish and the South London side can be backed at 5/2 to finish in the top half of the table next year.
