Cabaye Set For PSG Debut

New signing Yohan Cabaye says he is prepared to be thrown straight into the Paris Saint-Germain side when the Ligue 1 leaders host Bordeaux at the Parc des Princes on Friday evening.
The 28-year-old France midfielder completed his transfer from Newcastle United on Wednesday, penning a three-and-a-half-year deal in the capital for a fee which is reported to be worth 23 million euros (£19m, $31.4m) including bonuses.
Cabaye, who made his name with Lille and played under PSG coach Laurent Blanc in the French national side, faces fierce competition for places in the Paris line-up, with Blaise Matuidi, Marco Verratti and Thiago Motta considered the first-choice trio in a 4-3-3 system.
However, there could be an early opportunity for Cabaye to impress against Les Girondins with young Italian playmaker Verratti suspended and Adrien Rabiot, another option for Blanc, struggling with a knee problem.
“I am in a hurry to make my debut and represent my new club. I feel fit and I hope to be in the squad and to participate”, Cabaye said at his unveiling at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday evening.
