Cabaye, 27, has been linked to the newly-installed French champions after proving a rare success in an otherwise disappointing campaign for Newcastle. However, the French international, who signed a five-year deal when he swapped Lille for the north-east of England in summer 2011, told RMC he hoped to continue his career in the Premier League, though not necessarily as part of Alan Pardew's squad.

"For the moment, yes," he replied when asked if he counted on remaining at St. James's Park. "There's one game left, we're going to try and finish well before the holidays. With regards a transfer, I have agents who take care of that aspect of things."

He added: "[PSG] are a big club with a great project. But I've been playing in the Premier League for the last two years. I feel good here. I would be happy to continue in England."
