Paris St Germain coach Laurent Blanc has refused to rule out a move for Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye before the January transfer window closes.

Speculation previously surfaced around Cabaye in the summer, when he missed the Magpies' first three games of the season following a bid from Arsenal. Blanc has made no secret of his admiration for the 28-year-old, and reports suggest PSG are preparing to double the Gunners' offer with a £20million-plus fee. At present, Newcastle insist no bid has been received.

But with Cabaye in form, with five goals in his last seven appearances for Newcastle, and available to play in the Champions League knockout stages, he is an attractive proposition to Blanc.

The former France manager is in need of a midfielder after losing Adrien Rabiot to injury.
