Yohan Cabaye

Newcastle United chief scout Graham Carr has stolen a march on many of his rivals when it comes to snapping up the finest talent emerging from France in recent years and he hit the jackpot when he signed Cabaye from Lille last summer.


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is among those thought to have passed on the option of signing this majestic playmaker and it has proved to be a big mistake, as Cabaye emerged as one of the shining lights of the Premier League season, scoring and creating goals in a thrillingly successful Newcastle side.


His international career took him through a host of junior ranks of the French set-up before he earned his first senior cap against Norway in Laurent Blanc’s first game as Les Bleus coach, and he is now preparing for his first major tournament as a senior France star.
