Newcastle dismiss speculation over future of Cabaye
Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has scoffed at suggestions that Barcelona could lure Yohan Cabaye away from St James' Park for as little at £8million. A report claimed the Catalan giants could be preparing an £8million bid for Cabaye, but with the Magpies ready to fend off all but "silly money" offers for their biggest names, Pardew has warned them not to bother.
He said: "The interest is purely speculative. We have had no contact and certainly no offer, and obviously we wouldn't even consider an offer anywhere near that region."
