Yohan Cabaye will have to wait on Crystal Palace to see if his contract is renewed for another season this summer.
The Frenchman is out of a contract this summer after spending the last three seasons in south London. Since leaving Paris Saint-Germain in 2015, the midfielder has made 109 appearances for the Eagles. Palace are set to hold talks with Cabaye this month amid rumors of a move to French side Marseille. Said Cabaye: "I don’t know what the future holds. It was a hard, tough season so I will have a chat with my agent, the club and the chairman. I have no stress about my future, so I just wanted to enjoy today and then see what happens next. I’ve had three fantastic seasons here, I love the club and my life in London is perfect, so I will see." May 18 - 5:56 AM

Yohan Cabaye has been added to an ever-growing Crystal Palace injury list after sustaining a groin strain in training.

Roy Hodgson confirmed on Friday that the Eagles "have 12 players out now," more than half of which were first-team regulars. However, with only eleven players listed as injured, the mystery behind who was the 12th man wasn’t revealed until later that evening following a press embargo. Former Newcastle midfielder Cabaye was injured during Thursdays session and he now faces a race against time to make the clash with Manchester United next weekend. An extensive casualty list - which includes the likes of Scott Dann, Loftus-Cheek, Mamadou Sakho, Wilfried Zaha and Jeffrey Schlupp – leaves Hodgson with little option but to include some of his fringe players. Jairo Riedewald [3 PL starts] and Erdal Rakip [who is yet to play a single minute since his arrival from Malmo] could come into the side while Damien Delaney [frozen out this season] looks set to partner James Tomkins in the heart of defence.

Roy Hodgson has been handed an unexpected injury boost following the news that Yohan Cabaye could return on Tuesday evening.

The Eagles boss initially ruled the Frenchman out for between 4-6 weeks after he was stretchered off at The Emirates on January 20. However, subsequent tests revealed the damage wasn’t as bad as initially thought, and Cabaye has responded well to treatment over the past 10 days. Palace will also include long-term absentee - Mamadou Sakho – in the squad taking on West Ham following his recovery from a serious calf injury. The defender has missed almost two months, but Hodgson may be keen to throw Sakho straight back in, after shipping four against Arsenal. Joel Ward is better placed for minutes after he was restricted to a place on the bench in game week twenty-four. Connor Wickham [ACL], Jeffrey Schlupp [MCL] and Ruben Loftus-Cheek remain in the Palace treatment room.

Yohan Cabaye is expected to be ruled out for at least a month after suffering an ankle ligament injury during Saturdays loss at The Emirates.

The French midfielder was carried off on a stretcher and replaced by Jairo Riedewald ending a dismal afternoon for the Eagles who were well beaten by a rampant Arsenal side. "We've lost two to cruciate ligament injuries [Scott Dann and Jason Puncheon], one to a medial knee ligament [Jeffrey Schlupp], Ruben Loftus-Cheek to an ankle ligament [and] probably lost Yohan Cabaye to an ankle ligament," mused Roy Hodgson post-match. Cabaye, who could miss between four and six weeks, is the latest in a line of unfortunate injury setbacks which threatens to derail Palace’s hopes of survival. "We only just got Joel Ward back, we've still got Mamadou Sakho trying to recover from a major calf injury. That's an awful lot of players with good quality for any team in the lower half of the league to deal with." Hodgson will look to bolster his squad during the January window.
Jan 22 - 7:42 AM

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson said he has no control over Yohan Cabaye's future, but assured he is wanted in the Palace midfield.

The French midfielder's contract is up at the end of the season, putting him at risk of leaving on a free transfer. Rumors have linked him with an exit in the winter transfer window, but Hodgson said he remains a major part of the team's bid to avoid relegation: "I'm a big admirer of his and he's doing a fantastic job. But his situation with the club will be discussed with [director of football] Dougie [Freedman] and the chairman [Steve Parish] and then they'll bring me in on the discussion at the appropriate time. There's no doubt he's one of the players we have who are bonafide, quality, Premier League players who can keep us in the league, and that group needs assisting by being boosted, not pruning down in any way."

Crystal Palace will receive a major boost in midfield with Yohan Cabaye and James McArthur both returning from injury.

The central midfield pairing missed the club's opening match against Huddersfield Town as they recovered from injuries that hampered them in the preseason. However, the Eagles will have to cope without star winger Wilfried Zaha for about the next four weeks due to a knee injury. Said manager Frank de Boer: "Apart from him we do have most of the squad ready although some may not be fit for 90 minutes for example Yohan Cabaye and James McArthur are ready to be available to play some minutes for us."

Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer confirmed that James McArthur and Yohan Cabye are out Saturday.

Said the new manager: "James McArthur and Yohan Cabaye are both fit and training but not ready to be in contention for the starting eleven but are both looking and good and will continue to work on their fitness by getting game time in under 23 games." Expect Luka Milivojevic and Jason Puncheon to anchor the midfield along with Ruben Loftus-Cheek in a more advanced role. The club is also without Connor Wickham and Bakary Sako as the attackers recover from injury. But the good news is Pape Souare, who was involved in a car crash last year, is set to return with the U23s in the near future after nearly a year out.

Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce said the club will wait on the fitness of James Tomkins and Yohan Cabaye.

The starting duo have missed the last two games due to muscle injuries, with fears they could miss the remainder of the season, but Allardyce confirmed they will face fitness tests ahead of Sunday's game against Hull City: "The more likely ones to be fit are James Tomkins and Yohan Cabaye but they are not training with us yet but are making good progress. That real decision probably won't happen until Saturday morning and then we will see what we have got available." Meanwhile, Andros Townsend (Achilles) and Joel Ward (broken nose) are also doubts after picking up minor injuries last week.

Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce doesn't expect midfielder Yohan Cabaye to miss too much time with a calf injury.

But Allardyce confirmed the star midfielder is not expected to be fit for the club's home match against Arsenal on Monday night, meaning Joe Ledley is expected to come back into the starting linuep: "We lost Yohan Cabaye at half time during the Southampton game with a calf injury which will more than likely see him miss the Arsenal game on Monday. We will see how that settles down but even though it shouldn’t be too long out for him but with the amount of games we have it means someone could miss three games if they are out for a week."

Sam Allardyce lamented yet another addition to Crystal Palace's growing injury list with Yohan Cabaye ruled out.

The former Newcastle star sustained a calf injury in the club's 3-1 loss to Southampton on Wednesday night, which he had to leave at half-time. The injury has already ruled Cabaye out for the weekend match against Arsenal and possibly more. At least the club will have Joe Ledley returning after the birth of his child, while James McArthur could also return from back spasms, but there isn't much depth at any position for the Eagles. Said Allardyce: "Patrick van Aanholt, James Tomkins, Pape Souare, Connor Wickham, Loic Remy and Fraizer Campbell are all injured and now Yohan. We're thin on the ground now. James McArthur may be back for Arsenal, but he's not played a huge amount since his back spasms."

Sam Allardyce's first game in charge resulted in a draw, as a Yohan Cabaye strike was canceled out by a Watford goal in the second half as Crystal Palace played to a 1-1 final.

The Allardyce era began with a mixed bag result. Palace put forth the stronger attacking threat in the first half, and Yohan Cabaye looked resurrected under the new manager. The French international would score the first goal as he sneaked past the defense while managing to stay onside and Andros Townsend slipped a pass through and Cabaye fired into the far corner. The momentum shifted to Watford in the second half and the Hornets would eventually level after Damian Delaney committed a foul in the area. The defense only conceded the one spot kick, so there is reason for optimism that this Eagles side who have struggled defensively will begin to tighten up going forward.

Crystal Palace fans will be asking themselves how they ended up playing last year's Leicester City in a 3-1 loss to the Premier League champions.

Yohan Cabaye returned from a series of minor injuries to start only his third match of the season and scored a consolation goal in the 85th minute when the score was already 3-0. The Frenchman took a cross from Wilfried Zaha with just five minutes remaining and slotted it past Kasper Schmeichel to ensure the Foxes didn't come away with a clean sheet. The only real chance Palace had at turning this into a competitive match came courtesy of Christian Benteke, who hit the crossbar with a header in the first half down 1-0. Meanwhile, Palace did without captain Scott Dann, who returned to training from a hamstring injury last week.

Reports are beginning to circulate that Yohan Cabaye has been injured while on international duty.

The precise nature or indeed the extent of the problem are yet to be confirmed, but several respected media outlets, plus the official fantasy Premier League game, have the Palace playmaker side-lined due to a knee problem. Cabaye made his first league start of the season on Saturday, and despite missing a first half penalty, his appearance in the Eagles line-up provided a massive boost following losses in their two opening matches. Alan Pardew has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to bolster his squad and following hot on the heels of record signing Christian Benteke, Loic Remy has arrived from Chelsea. However, Pardew may now be in the market for a new midfielder with Cabaye POTENTIALLY missing for several weeks. Jack Wilshere has been linked after Arsenal agreed to allow the injury-plagued England international to leave on-loan.

Crystal Palace has been handed a massive fitness boost ahead of its biggest game of the season in the FA Cup final this weekend.

Both Connor Wickham and Yohan Cabaye trained with the club yesterday for the first time since picking up a pair of injuries that caused them to miss the season finale against Southampton on Sunday. Wickham has overcome an ankle injury but could face competition to start with Dwight Gayle in the mix, but Cabaye will surely be in the lineup if he has fully overcome a rib injury. The news comes after Wilfried Zaha passed himself fit earlier this week to face his former side in Manchester United in the final at Wembley Stadium with a spot in next year's Europa League on the line.

Crystal Palace continued to limp their way to the finish line with a 1-0 loss to Newcastle United.

The Eagles, who had designs on a Europa League spot during the first half of the season, have won just once since a week before Christmas in league play. They looked the better bet to score in the first half today, with Yannick Bolasie causing problems for the Magpies, but could not take advantage of their possession. Yohan Cabaye had a shot from short range but it was from a narrow angle and was saved by Karl Darlow. The two would lock horns again in the second half when it looked as though Palace were set to equalize with a penalty. They had converted every penalty they were given this season, but Cabaye's effort was poor and Darlow made the stop. At this point, the Eagles should feel fortunate the season is not a couple of games longer, or they would be staring at one of the most disastrous collapses in league history. Certainly, changes are in order this summer.
