Former Newcastle defender Olivier Bernard says he is “absolutely sure” that fellow Frenchman and long-term Manchester United target Yohan Cabaye will return to the Premier League in January.
The France international left the Magpies last January but has struggled to cement a regular starting spot with the Ligue 1 giants.
And Bernard is adamant that the talented midfielder will return to England when the January transfer window opens.
As quoted on Newcastle Chrnicle, Bernard said:“Yohan did not join PSG with any guarantees that he would be starting games and the problem for him is that when he has been playing or starting, he’s been struggling to really make the sort of impact that he made with Newcastle.
“He will be back in England in January, absolutely no doubt.
“He will come back to the Premier League and he will already be looking for a club to join that will get him the games that he needs to guarantee him a place in the France squad.”
“Will that be with Newcastle? Well you can never rule anything out in football, but they will be very lucky to get him in January. If they do it will probably mean that there isn’t an offer from one of the clubs that is playing in the Champions League.”
