Yohan Cabaye has revealed that his is delighted with his decision to leave Newcastle for Paris Saint-Germain in January.

The French playmaker ended his two-and-a-half year spell at St James’ Park during the last transfer window after a long period of speculation surrounding his happiness on Tyneside.

Although he started his spell in Paris as a first-team regular, Cabaye’s playing time has dropped off a little of late as he battles with a number of other established stars to feature in Laurent Blanc’s XI.

But the 28-year-old insists that he is still content with his choice to join PSG and that he has no regrets at bringing his successful spell at Newcastle to an end:

“I want to focus on the positive aspects – they (PSG) are a great club and I’m training with great players.” He is quoted by The Express.

“I have gone from a situation at Newcastle where I was an automatic starter, to one where I don’t know when I will next play.

“However, I absolutely don’t regret my decision. I have come here to win and climb the hierarchy.”

Cabaye developed a reputation as one of the Premier League’s top midfielders after his 2011 move to the Magpies from Lille.

He was linked with Arsenal last summer, and was rumoured to be a target for Manchester United in January.
