Newcastle manager Alan Pardew expects another PSG bid for Yohan Cabaye

Transfer news: Newcastle's Alan Pardew braced for battle with PSG over Yohan Cabaye

Having seen Andy Carroll join Liverpool for £35m at the 11th hour back in 2011, Alan Pardew knows just how unpredictable the last day of the January transfer window can be. So it was no surprise that the Newcastle United manager was not exactly sanguine about his prospects of holding on to the club’s star midfielder Yohan Cabaye this week in the face of sustained interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

<b>DAVID MOYES:</b> The bookmaker’s favourite. He has the drive and determination to take on the challenge but any appointment would represent a comparative risk for United. Ferguson will have a say in his successor and has long admired his fellow Scot. Speculation has been intense of late that he is in his last season at Goodison Park, but has no real experience at the very highest level.
