Newcastle to demand £25m to ward off bidders

Yohan Cabaye

Incoming Newcastle United director of football Joe Kinnear is hoping to ward off potential bidder of midfielder Yohan Cabaye by slapping a £25million asking price on his head, according to the Daily Star.

The French midfield man is being tracked by big spending PSG as well as Manchester United and Arsenal.

Despite not finding his top form last season, Cabaye is still a key player at St James’ Park and Kinnear wants to keep hold of him this summer to please the manager and the fans rather than making Mike Ashley a quick buck.

The 27 year old has openly stated that he wants to stay in the North East but a big money move to a big club playing in the Champions League could be too hard to turn down this summer.

The Toon only paid £4.5million for their star man two years ago and so would see a real profit if they were to cash in this summer but the £25milllion tag is set to scare off any interested parties.
