FRANCE coach Didier Deschamps claimed Yohan Cabaye was "lost" before his transfer from Paris Saint-Germain to Crystal Palace.

The PS10million Eagles signing revealed on French TV that senior players at the Paris club were against his signing from Newcastle in January 2014 and he never settled.

Cabaye (above) started only 22 Ligue 1 matches during his 18-month spell, despite being in the France World Cup squad.

The playmaker has now returned to the Premier League to help his bid to play in Euro 2016.

Deschamps said: "He was pretty much not playing - he was lost.

"I prefer that he re-finds his football, where he can show again his qualities when good in the head as well as his body."
