PARIS - Paris Saint-Germain has signed midfielder Yohan Cabaye from Newcastle on a three-and-a-half year deal, the latest step in the ambitious French club's bid to become one of Europe's biggest teams.

PSG presented Cabaye at a news conference on Wednesday. No financial details were given by the club, but the 28-year-old Cabaye reportedly cost 20 million euros ($A31.20 million) plus bonuses.

"I'm very, very happy to be here. I'm really very proud too to be a part of this immense project PSG want to build and I'm eager to start with my new team," Cabaye said.

"I'd like to thank Newcastle for allowing this transfer to happen. It's difficult to turn PSG down these days. I want to win trophies and PSG offer me that. There was no hesitation on my part."

Cabaye is renowned for his outstanding shooting from distance and is a free-kick specialist.

He could make his debut in tomorrow's home game against Bordeaux.

"I'm impatient to start, I hope so," he said. "I'm ready to put my new colours on and to represent PSG.

"I feel in good form so there'll be no problem at that level. I hope I'll be on the team sheet on Friday."
