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.
