Yohan Cabaye marked his return to the Premier League with a late goal against Norwich.
Crystal Palace were the better team today despite being away from home and they'll feel good about their 3-1 win over Norwich. The other goals for Palace came from Damien Delaney and Wilfried Zaha, who played a good match. Palace seem to be solid this season and they'll likely hover around mid-table for the majority of the campaign, but there is fantasy value to be exploited here. Aug 8 - 12:23 PM

Crystal Palace are sweating on the fitness of French midfielder Yohan Cabaye who limped out of Saturdays’ draw with Fulham due to a knock.

Cabaye suffered a dead leg during a frantic opening 15 minutes at Craven Cottage and although the 29 year-old was able to hobble his way through the first half he did not emerge for the restart. Alan Pardew remains hopeful that Cabaye will be ready but the Eagles boss can take nothing for granted "He's one we're going to have to look at, to make sure he's OK. I think there's a slender chance he might not be available." The news came just hours after Palace confirmed Julian Speroni will miss around a month because of a finger injury. His absence leaves Wayne Hennessey and Alex McCarthy to fight it out for the goalkeepers jersey at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Crystal Palace take their first loss of the pre-season after being defeated by Union Berlin, 0-2.

Glenn Murray had a couple of opportunities to perhaps give the Eagles the initial advantage, but a header that found the net in the 15th minute was waived off because of a foul in the area. Shortly thereafter, Murray went down in the box, hoping to draw a penalty but it did not come. Marquee signing Yohan Cabaye also looked to have scored at one point, but play was ruled offside. Instead of finding an equalizer it was Berlin who put the match away with a late second goal.

Crystal Palace have confirmed the signing of Yohan Cabaye from PSG for a fee of £10 million…

For all the ‘advanced’ talks, agreements ‘in principal’ and bids ‘accepted’, we all know a transfer is never a done deal until the player is pictured holding up his new team shirt. That’s the law. And Palace have finally got their man, confirming the signing of Yohan Cabaye this morning. Palace paid a club record £10m fee to PSG which could rise to close to £13m with add-ons. The 29-year-old French international has signed a three-deal deal and set his sights on the top eight. He is a proven PL performer who was on the radar of Arsenal and Manchester United in recent seasons and knows manager Alan Pardew well. It was Pardew that paid £19m to take him to Newcastle, where he scored 18 goals in 93 matches. It is a major coup for Palace and there could be more to come, with bids tabled for Charlie Austin and Loic Remy.

Is Crystal Palace’s sensational capture of French international Johan Cabaye from under the noses of London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal a sign of things to come…?

Last month Crystal Palace chairman made a point of saying that if the club wanted to establish themselves as a top ten club they had to sign top ten players. The signing of French international Johan Cabaye from PSG proves this wasn’t just hot air, or a ploy to create demand for season tickets. But is it ambition, or is simply Palace punching above their weight? Leicester City’s signing of Estaban Cambiasso has some parallels, although it could be said the 34-year-old’s career is/was on a downward trajectory. West Ham famously gave Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano their break in Europe, but were never destined to hold on to them very long. What happens next at Palace is key. Fans will be hoping that Cabaye is the catalyst for more quality to come, but if current talent – like Scott Dann, an £8m target for Everton – is sold off to balance the books, it might look like a gesture.

Crystal Palace have agreed a £10 million deal to sign French international midfielder Johan Cabaye from PSG…

It appears that Pardew and Palace have got their man. The pursuit of PSG’s Johan Cabaye was considered in some quarters as posturing in order to make Palace a more attractive club to other transfer targets. Neither Chelsea’s Loic Remy nor QPR’s Charlie Austin were interested in a move across London, despite the promise of first-team football at a top 10 club. But the £10m deal – which could rise to £13m with add-ons – is evidence of Chairman Steve Parish putting his money where his mouth is. PSG paid £19m for the French International in January last year, when he was reportedly on the radar of Arsenal and Manchester United. He is proven PL performer, scoring 18 goals in his 93 matches for Newcastle and we will watch the rest of the transfer window at Palace with interest.

Crystal Palace are in talks with PSG over the proposed £10 million transfer of French International Johan Cabaye…

Talk of a move for the French International has rumbled on for a while, but not it seems negotiations have reached a formal stage. Cabaye joined PSG from Newcastle – then managed by Palace boss Alan Pardew, of course - for £19 million in January 2014. But has struggled to make an impact and started just 13 matches last season. Aged 29 and with the Euros at the end of the coming season, Cabaye will be keen to secure regular first-team action. Palace expect competition though - London rivals Tottenham and West Ham have already declared an interest, plus Southampton are monitoring the situation having resigned themselves to losing Morgan Schneiderlin to Manchester United. It’s been a frustrating summer so far of Pardew and Palace, with interest in Loic Remy, Charlie Austin and Matt Phillips so far fruitless.

West Ham are looking to sign a trio of French internationals with Marseille attacking midfielder Dimitri Payet expected to be the first to join the Hammers in a move worth around $19 million.

Payet arrives on the back of a solid Ligue 1 season which returned 7 goals and 17 assists in a deal which the club hope to conclude within the next 24 hours. Payet would become the club’s third summer signing although Slaven Bilic has no intention of calling a halt to his transfer dealings just yet with the Hammers’ pursuing former Newcastle playmaker Yohan Cabaye and Chelsea striker Loic Remy. Both have struggled to nail down a regular spot at their respective clubs and the pair are keen on playing within the BPL next season although their availability has sparked interest amongst a number of sides. Any possibility of Alex Song joining West Ham looks to be over after the club refused to meet Barcelona's $8 million price tag plus the players $100k per week salary.

This one would be a huge shock if it happened but Yohan Cabaye has been linked with a move to Crystal Palace to work with Alan Pardew again.

The 29-year-old midfielder started only 13 matches for PSG this past season and featured in 11 more as a substitute. With Euro2016 scheduled for France, Cabaye may need a move away from Paris to ensure that he is getting enough playing time to feature for Les Bleus when they host the tournament. If PSG make him available, you get the feeling he could find a bigger club if he wanted to. The shred of credibility in this rumor is that the player may value the relationship with Pardew and the comfort in knowing that he will likely start every match he is healthy for if he moves to Selhurst Park.

Yohan Cabaye has completed his moved to PSG, and has signed for the French club until 2017.

Newcastle United were built around the French midfield maestro. His attacking flair and defensive tenacity were vital to how they set up, either with him behind the striker or deeper in midfield. Manager Alan Pardew has a task on his hand to reshape the team on the fly and get the best out of the other midfielders on his roster, like Hatem Ben Arfa, Vurnon Anita, Yoan Gouffran, etc.

French giants, Paris Saint-Germain, have made a deal with Newcastle United over the transfer of midfielder Yohan Cabaye.

The deal happened quickly, even after manager Alan Pardew had named Cabaye in his squad to travel to Norwich. Now, instead of facing the Canaries, Cabaye will be having a medical in Paris. Newcastle United, the Premier League, and fantasy managers, are losing a top-class player. Hatem Ben Arfa could come into the Newcastle side, but he won't bring the same application on both sides of the ball as Cabaye, while Vurnon Anita isn't as strong of an attacker.

Yohan Cabaye scored two goals in Newcastle's away 3-1 win over West Ham United.

Cabaye scored the first and the last of the Newcastle goals to help his team win the three points. The other Newcastle goal came from Loic Remy while the Hammers' goal came from Mike Williamson putting it in his own net. Newcastle are now in eight place while West Ham drop back into the relegation zone. Cabaye is expensive in the Yahoo! game but keeps showing us he is worth every penny. He is matchup proof and you can play him week in and week out.

Yohan Cabaye won't train until Friday, at the earliest, and is a major doubt ahead of Newcastle United's match against Manchester City on Sunday.

Cabaye, suffering from an achilles injury, returned to France to rest while his team lost to Cardiff City in the FA Cup. Cabaye has been playing in a more advanced role of late, and against Manchester City Moussa Sissoko might be moved into that role. Hatem Ben Arfa may be deemed to slight and to undisciplined with the ball to risk against City.

Midfielder, Yohan Cabaye, is available to face Crystal Palace after serving a one-match ban for yellow card accumulation.

Cabaye will surely come straight back into the side at the expense of Vurnon Anita.

Yohan Cabaye scored a wonderful winning goal against Manchester United, but also picked up his fifth yellow card of the season. He will miss the match against Southampton.

Vurnon Anita is the likely candidate to deputize for the Frenchman. Anita has put in some good performances recently, but Cabaye's form has been winning matches for Newcastle and he'll be a tough player to replace.
