Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye has played down talk of a move to Paris Saint-Germain and says the French club have not been in contact.
Cabaye recently revealed he will leave Newcastle to go in search of Champions League football, something that big-spending PSG would be able to offer him.
Toon boss Alan Pardew has ruled out a move, however, saying he wants Cabaye to stay and help the Magpies qualify for the Champions League, but that is not stopping rumours linking him with a move away.
PSG are known to be keen and there have been suggestions a January bid could be in the pipeline, while Arsenal could resurrect their interest after failing with an offer in the summer.
Cabaye has played down the rumours although he did say he would be interested in a move back to his homeland should PSG pursue their interest.
“As far as I know, there has been no contact with Paris Saint-Germain,” he said.
“Who wouldn’t want to join PSG today? Paris make other teams afraid in Europe, more so than last season. I really hope they win the Champions League.”
PSG Laurent Blanc angered Newcastle by declaring his interest and has again done little to pour cold water on the transfer rumours.
“I’m the coach of a big club with a lot of ambition, so all good players interest us,” he said
