Newcastle boss Pardew angry with PSG coach Blanc over Cabaye comments

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is unimpressed by the behaviour of PSG coach Laurent Blanc.

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is unimpressed by the behaviour of PSG coach Laurent Blanc.

Blanc has described France international Yohan Cabaye as "an interesting player" and Newcastle are bracing themselves for an offer, although it would take a bid considerably in excess of £20million for them to consider doing business.

Asked if he had been irritated by the speculation, Pardew told the Evening Chronicle: "A little bit. I don't think that's right.

"He can get on the phone to me or make a bid. I think that's the right way to do it.

"I think the way it's come out isn't perhaps respectful to Yohan.

"That's something I want to talk to him about."
