United have agreed terms with Cabaye

will miss out on signing after saw a bid for the French international accepted last night.

had seen a £14m bid rejected earlier but bankrolled by the oil money of a Qatari consortium, the French side returned with an improved bid said to be in the region of £23m for Cabaye.

Cabaye scored the winner for Newcastle last month as Alan Pardew’s side took 3 points from Old Trafford, further fuelling speculation that he could be drafted in by Moyes to bolster the midfield.

But with looking to add Cabaye to their £300m plus list of signings, Moyes will be forced to look elsewhere.

The 28 year old was seen as a potential signing for during this transfer window in addition to but it appears he will now be returning to his native France. Perhaps the move opens the door for a move for Blaise Matuidi who is still yet to sign a new deal with the Parisians.
