Yohan Cabaye acknowledges Crystal Palace are in a “difficult situation”, while also admitting he’s flattered to be linked with Marseille.

Palace are languishing second from bottom in the Premier League after a poor season so far which cost Alan Pardew his job and has seen the Eagles win only one of Sam Allardyce’s seven Premier League matches in charge.

Cabaye was substituted during the first half of Palace’s 4-0 capitulation to relegation rivals Sunderland, which made Allardyce our early loser at the weekend.

There has been talk of Cabaye leaving Selhurst Park in the summer, with Marseille reportedly interested, and the France midfielder did little to damped the speculation.

“It’s flattering, because OM are one of the great French clubs,” Cabaye told L’Equipe.

But Cabaye says he is committed to helping Palace get out of their current predicament.

“We’re in a difficult situation,” he acknowledged.

“I’m trying my best to help my team as best I can. I have immense respect for the coach, but today that’s the reality with my club.”
