PSG announced the signing of French international midfielder Yohan Cabaye from Newcastle United at a press conference on Wednesday evening.
Newcastle also confirmed the transfer on their web-site, stating Cabaye had been sold for an undisclosed fee.
Cabaye, who last year was linked to both Arsenal and Manchester United, returns to France for a fee that is reported to be £23 million, and has signed a contract until 2017.
Cabaye arrived in Paris early on Wednesday and passed his medical in the afternoon. He will wear the number four jersey.
At the beginning of the season when Newcastle rejected an Arsenal bid, Cabaye went ‘on strike’ and refused to play for the club in two games.
However the issue was resolved, and Cabaye became a Newcastle fan favourite again, especially when he scored in December 2013 to give them first win against Manchester United at Old Trafford in over four decades.
Cabaye joined Newcastle in 2011 from Lille for £4.5 million.
PSG owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi told L’Equipe that there were three reasons they had targeted Cabaye.
“One, he is very good player, very interesting to us,” said Al-Khelaifi.
“Two, I have never met him but I was told he is a very nice guy.
“Three, he is French and it is very important for us to recruit French players at PSG in order to win the French Championship.”
