Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye rejected interest from Arsenal late, last week, it has been revealed.

Cabaye decided not to consider a move to Arsenal after being let in on negotiations by Toon owner Mike Ashley.

The Mirror reports Ashley let Cabaye listen to phone negotiations and heard Arsenal representatives say: "£25 million a lot for a reserve".

That was enough for Cabaye to rule out moving to London.
