Palace chief says Irons-linked Cabaye is top target


Crystal Palace co chairman Steve Parish has made it clear that he will move heaven and earth to get alleged West Ham target Yohan Cabaye into Selhurst Park from Paris Saint-Germain.

Many reports have linked the midfielder with a Hammers move but speaking on talkSPORT Parish declared it would be a ‘massive’ signing for his club.

He also admitted the signing would be in excess of £10 million and added: “‘Yohan Cabaye is definitely one we’d like to do. It would be a massive thing for the club obviously, because he’s a seasoned international.’

Crystal Palace are interested in signing PSG midfielder Yohan Cabaye this summer 

Pardew has made Cabaye his ‘must have’ target but there is also interest from Spurs and and Southampton. However, Parish’s on the record comments suggest that he may be feeling a growing confidence in his ability to grab the player.
However, he added: ‘Getting the top players is difficult, it’s a difficult transfer market right now.”

    He could be the icing on the cake if we can get the RB,CH and CF positions filled first with the best available,

    • Roman says:

      You are right bubs in my opinion.Love to see Cabaye in claret and blue.Spuds seem to have their noses in this one and Embolo as well.

    Pards must really have a thing for Cabayes missus lol

  • bubs says:

    Never seen his missus but Pards has a thing for several players I bet if we sign a new CH he makes an offer for Tomkins he does it every year,
    Looks like Downing is going for about £8 million so not much of a stretch to but Cabaye
    Might just need Slav to have a butchers at his missus

  • Lt. Quickdrawovic 1st Slavalry C&H Regt says:

    Could be a good hunch about Tonks although his long contract would mean a high price.
    Slav doesn’t need to have a butchers,women have a butchers at him then he decides lol

  • Dicksyland says:

    Really think we need Cabaye. Find a way to play him and Payet together and no team in the Prem’ would be safe. He can rip teams apart.

  • Roman says:

    On the money Dicksyland.He would be as bubs puts it “the icing on the cake”
