Paris St Germain are set to unveil midfielder Yohan Cabaye as their latest signing later on Wednesday.

The French giants have called a press conference for this evening, when the Newcastle playmaker is expected to be confirmed as a PSG player.

PSG had a £14million bid rejected for the 28-year-old on Sunday but then returned with a significantly improved offer in a bid to get their man, which appears to have been successful.

Cabaye has undergone a medical and is widely tipped to be at the centre of the press conference, which takes place at 1830 local time.

Meanwhile, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has ruled out a move for Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

The big-spending French club are believed to be one of the few teams who could afford to sign the 26-year-old Argentinian.

However, Al-Khelafi said there was not a bottomless pit of money for team strengthening.

He told L'Equipe: "If we didn't have any limit, we'd bring in Messi. If Messi isn't coming to Paris, it's because some limits really exist."
