ARSENAL are yet to table an improved offer for Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye.

The north London club this week had a £10m bid for Cabaye turned down by Newcastle.

And Arsenal are expected to return with an bigger offer for the 27-year-old, who is also interesting Paris Saint-Germain.

“The situation with Yohan is ongoing,” said United manager Alan Pardew.

“We’ve had one bid, and we’ve turned it down. That’s all I can comment on with Yohan.”

Pardew wouldn’t reveal whether Cabaye - who sat out Monday night’s defeat to Manchester City - would be involved against West Ham United at St James’s Park on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Pardew says United have a “gameplan” for the final few days of the transfer window.

Pardew had a meeting with club owner Mike Ashley and director of football Joe Kinnear in the south of France this week.

Newcastle have signed just one player in this summer’s transfer window, loanee Loic Remy.

And there is intense pressure on Kinnear to deliver another striker before September 2.

“I was there to see the owner,” said Pardew.

“We wanted to make sure we get ourselves a gameplan for the final week (of the transfer window.”
