Spurs enter join race for Ligue 1-winning ace

Tottenham have joined the queue of sides ready to offer Yohan Cabaye a route back to the Premier League, according to reports from The Mirror.

The 29-year-old left Newcastle in January 2014 in order to return to his homeland with Paris Saint-Germain, but his spell in the French capital has been a difficult one.

Despite claiming two Ligue 1 titles and featuring the Champions League, Cabaye is far from being a frequent starter for the Parisians, who possess a talented squad put together with the millions of their Middle Eastern backers.

Crystal Palace have emerged as surprise contenders to lure the pass-master back across the Channel, while Slaven Bilic’s West Ham are also thought to be interested.

However, reports suggest that Spurs are the latest London-based outfit to switch their transfer crosshairs towards the Les Bleus star.

White Hart Lane chief Mauricio Pochettino is understood to be ready to rebuild his midfield this summer, with players such as Paulinho, Benjamin Stambouli, Etienne Capoue and Mousa Dembele all available at the right price.

Cabaye could be tempted by a move, with regular playing time likely to be a big factor in his chances of playing for France at EURO 2016.
