Yohan Cabaye has dropped a heavy hint that he would be open to a move away from Newcastle United this summer, with Manchester United a preferred destination.

In an interview with Canal+ while on international duty with France, the Newcastle midfielder said he would "let my agents work for me".

Cabaye is one of Alan Pardew's key players but the 27-year-old, who is reported to be coveted by Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco as well as United, suggested he is keeping his options open. "For the moment I am at Newcastle, you never know what happens in football," he said.

"The season is not finished as I have still two matches [for France]. After that I'm going on holiday and it can't come soon enough to clear my head of the difficult season we have just had, and I let my agents work for me. I have had no direct contact with anyone, maybe my agents are currently in the know."

Asked whether a move to Old Trafford appealed, Cabaye, who stressed he was happy in England, replied in the affirmative. "Yes of course, I like this club for a long time," he said. "I like what they do, the boss [Sir Alex Ferguson] has left, but they have appointed a very good successor [David Moyes], and he did some very good things with Everton.

"They are always well placed amongst the big clubs, yes for sure it could be an interesting challenge but like I said for the moment, there is nothing concrete and I am still at Newcastle."
