The France midfielder left Newcastle United to join PSG in the winter 2014 transfer window, with the Ligue 1 giants paying around £20m to take him from St. James' Park.

However, Cabaye found it tough to secure regular first team football at the Parc des Princes and increasingly began to fret about his place in the France squad.

He called time on his PSG adventure last summer to link up with former Newcastle boss Alan Pardew at Palace, signing a three-year deal.
While PSG won the French title with ease this season, Palace could only finish a lowly 15th in the Premier League – but Cabaye does not regret his choice and revealed he spoke to France coach Didier Deschamps before he made the move.

He told L'Equipe: "In fact, when the negotiations picked up pace, I was at Clairefontaine. The coach then addressed the subject and I told him. I told him the interested clubs and I asked him what he thought.

"He said 'the most important thing for you is to find your rhythm, especially in terms of your playing time'.

"After I made the choice of Palace, it is also because I know the coach very well and I love the league", Cabaye continued.

"Despite the bad half of the season, we had an excellent first part.

"On 19th December we were fifth. I have never regretted my career choice."

Cabaye is currently in the France squad at Euro 2016.
