ลิ้ ง sbo The Premier League season may only have finished two weeks ago, but already the contract situation of Yohan Cabaye at Crystal Palace is turning into something of a saga. The 32-year-old is out of contract at Palace this summer, and recently admitted that he did not know what the future holds for him. He said he was not stressed about his future and would be talking with the Eagles in the coming weeks to discuss his future, while describing his affection for the club.

It is understood that talks have since been held between Cabaye's representatives and the club, to discuss terms over a new deal. But Cabaye has also been linked with a move to UEFA Europa League finalists Marseille, with the Ligue 1 club reported to be interested in signing the Frenchman.

Cabaye has previously worked with Marseille manager Rudi Garcia at Lille, and is known to have friends at L'OM, while social media was abuzz with talk over a possible move after he was recently pictured at the French club's training ground ahead of the Europa League final. However, French publication L'Equipe has reported that he could yet stay at Palace this summer. ลิ้ ง sbo

Eagles manager Roy Hodgson has spoken about how important Cabaye is to his side, but conceded that he would have other options on the table this summer. It is understood that Cabaye has been offered fresh terms on a new two-year deal by the club, but with a reduced wage. And now, the Mirror is reporting that Palace are expecting an answer this week from the former Newcastle United and Paris Saint Germain midfielder.

Cabaye is not the only Palace player out of contract this summer, with goalkeepers Wayne Hennessey and Julian Speroni both recently speaking out about their own situations, and the contracts of defender Joel Ward, midfielder Chung-yong Lee and winger Bakary Sako also set to expire in the coming weeks. ลิ้ ง sbo
