Newcastle hope to close Cabaye deal today

Newcastle United hope to wrap up the signing of Lille midfielder Yohan Cabaye today.

The Sun says Cabaye is on the brink of sealing a £4.3million switch from French champions Lille to Newcastle.

The France midfielder is due on Tyneside today for a medical ahead of signing a five-year, £30,000-a-week deal.

Cabaye, 25, helped Lille to the French domestic double last season and is set to play a major role in Toon boss Alan Pardew's plans for the new campaign.
