LONDON (AFP) - Newcastle United have agreed to sell France international midfielder Yohan Cabaye to big-spending French champions Paris Saint-Germain, according to widespread British media reports on Tuesday.

PSG were reported to have had a 14-million-pound offer for the 28-year-old rejected on Sunday, but several media outlets, including the BBC, claim that a deal worth around 20 million pounds (S$42.3 million) has now been reached.

Cabaye will reportedly travel to Paris to undergo a medical examination on Tuesday, ruling him out of Newcastle's trip to Norwich City in the Premier League later in the day.

Speaking on Monday, Newcastle manager Alan Pardew had expressed pessimism about the club's chances of holding on to Cabaye, who signed from Lille for a fee of 4.3 million pounds in 2011.
