Newcastle have rejected a £14million offer for Yohan Cabaye from Paris St Germain, according to Sky Sports.
PSG boss Laurent Blanc has made no secret of his admiration for the French midfielder, having confirmed his clubs desire to land him earlier in the month.
Now it seems Blanc has made a concrete offer for the player who he handed an international debut, whilst coach of the France national side.
PSG enquired about Cabaye’s availability earlier in the month, and were believed to have been quoted a figure of £20million for his services.
However, the opening offer of £14million is short of Newcastle’s valuation of the 28-year-old.
The Magpies continue to insist they are not looking to sell any players this month, although manager Alan Pardew recently said that every player had their price.
Cabaye has two years left on his current deal at St James’s Park, although rules state he could in theory buy out the remainder of his own contract during the summer.
Cabaye was previously the subject of a failed bid from Arsenal, whilst reports have also claimed Liverpool remain interested in signing him.
