Paris St Germain will only make a £22million move for Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye this January if they can offload some players first, according to Sky Sports.

The big spending Ligue 1 side have been heavily linked with a move for Cabaye, and manager Laurent Blanc has admitted the Frenchman is a ‘very good player.’

Whilst Blanc has made no secret of his admiration for the Magpies midfielder – who was the subject of a failed bid from Arsenal in the summer – he has revealed he expects to be quiet during the January transfer window.

Blanc said: “We will not change much. If there is movement, it will not be much.

“I am very happy with the strength of my squad, but there may be movement based on departures.

“I have always thought that Cabaye is a very good player. But I have nothing more to say.”

Cabaye has enjoyed an excellent first half of the season for Alan Pardew’s side, scoring five times in 19 appearances, including three in his last four games.

PSG could look to add the in form midfielder to help their title push in the second half of the season.

Blanc’s side currently lead Ligue 1 by 3 points, with Monaco and Lille still very much in the hunt for the title.

Blanc added: “We had a very good first half of the season.

“I think the pressure of Monaco and [third-placed] Lille is good for everyone. They encourage us not to relax our efforts.

“We are ambitious and calm. This certainly comes from our good results and I hope they will be as good in 2014.”
