The Yohan Cabaye Situation still isn't resolved

Scott Heavey

...and it won't be anytime soon, apparently.

A day after telling The Chronicle's Lee Ryder that he's tired of PSG manager Laurent Blanc talking about his club's interest in Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye, Alan Pardew sat down with The Northern Echo's Paul Fraser to talk about PSG's interest in Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye.

In the interview, Pardew reiterated the official stance that Cabaye would not leave for less than £20 million, then revealed that he hasn't actually spoken to the man this summer, despite the advent of technology that allows people to speak to each other even when they're not in the same general vicinity:

It’s a bit difficult for me to talk about Yohan when I haven’t seen him because he’s still away. We’ve trained for a few really hard days here and the guys that have worked are looking great, the internationals are back on July 15 and I’ll sit down and talk to Yohan about the comments that have come out.

Will Yohan Cabaye be staying at Newcastle or leaving? It looks like we won't know for at least a few more days. What good is £20 million when there's no time to reinvest? Perhaps Pardew and Cabaye will be able to find some common ground in their frustration with Director of Football Joe Kinnear. Joe Kinnear: Bringing people together.
