Video: Cabaye arrives for PSG medical

The Newcastle midfielder is on the verge of completing his switch to the Ligue 1 leader as Laurent Blanc's side makes its first move in the January transfer window.
Yohan Cabaye has arrived in France to undergo a medical and finalize his move to Ligue 1 giant Paris Saint-Germain.

Goal reported on Tuesday that the former Lille playmaker was all set to complete his 24 million euro switch to Laurent Blanc's side, with the 26-year-old excused from Newcastle's matchday squad for the 0-0 draw with Norwich.

The deal for Cabaye represents PSG's first piece of transfer business in the January window, with club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi forced to defend the signing of the midfielder following reported in-house criticism that he was not at the required level.
