Yohan Cabaye: Looks set to join Monaco

Sky Bet have suspended betting on Yohan Cabaye's next club after a significant run of bets on the Newcastle midfielder joining Monaco.

Punters begun backing the playmaker for a move to the big-spending French outfit on Friday evening amid reports that he had already undergone a medical in the principality.

The Ligue 2 champions were already considered 6/4 favourites to secure his services ahead of Manchester United, but were backed at as short as 2/5 before betting was suspended.

Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "It's difficult to say whether the money was coming from people in the know or just due to the reports, but the size of the stakes imply those backing are convinced a deal is set to happen.

"Monaco have been backed to sign a series of players this summer, with money coming for them to sign Patrice Evra and Nani, while they have already signed James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao as they look to reestablish themselves as a major force with the financial backing of Russian billionaire Dmitri Rybolovlev."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
