FORMER Newcastle United star Yohan Cabaye has hit out at his lack of playing time at French side PSG - putting possible suitors on red alert for the January transfer window.
The 28-year-old left Newcastle last January for £19m but he has admitted he is “not happy” with his bit-part role at the French Champions under coach Laurent Blanc.
The Frenchman played just 15 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Moncao at the weekend, leading Cabaye to admit he is not used to being left out.
Cabaye told L’Equipe: “You have to accept being a substitute, but I don’t resign myself to that. In training sessions, I have to give my best and show my desire to play.
“When I am on the pitch, I feel it is not perfect and that I often have to leave too soon.
“But I know the coach and staff have to make choices and I respect that.
“Have I spoken to Laurent Blanc? No. What do I tell him? I am 28 years old and not new to the job. But I am not satisfied with the situation.
“Am I completely happy? To be honest, no. It is a new situation for me, but I don’t complain. It is the first time I haven’t played regularly for my club.
“With the French team, if one day the national team coach decides to play me less because I don’t play often enough for my club, then I would need to take stock with my representatives.”
His words will encourage a host of clubs interested in securing his services and Arsenal have previously been heavily linked with the French international.
