Cabaye drops Premier League hint

The former Newcastle central midfielder has previously stated his displeasure with his role at Paris Saint-Germain and says he is still in love with English football


Yohan Cabaye has reiterated his love for the Premier League but insists he will fight for his place in the Paris Saint-Germain team.

The France international was speaking after les Bleus’ 1-1 draw with Albania and touched on the problems he is experiencing in the capital.

Since moving to Laurent Blanc’s side in an estimated €20 million deal in January 2014, Cabaye has struggled to establish himself in the first XI and has been rumoured to be looking for a way back to England.

When asked by Canal Plus whether he will see out his contract with PSG, he said: “This is a question I do not ask myself, especially today. The situation at the club is what it is.

“I love England and it is not a surprise if I say that. Today I am in Paris but I’m not likely to give up. I will fight as I should to deserve what I deserve.

“Afterwards, if the situation stays like that… But now I don’t think about a transfer.”

Cabaye has previously been linked with both Arsenal and Manchester United and admitted his preference for linking up with Arsene Wenger in March.
