Yohan Cabaye has passed his medical ahead of a proposed move from Newcastle to Paris Saint-Germain, an AFP journalist confirmed Wednesday.

The 28-year-old midfielder arrived at the Parisian Pitie-Salpetriere hospital at 9am local time (0800 GMT) to undergo the necessary physical tests.

PSG have called a press conference for 6.30pm at their Parc des Princes ground later Wednesday.

English media have estimated the transfer fee at around 25 million euros ($34m).

PSG coach Laurent Blanc is a confirmed fan of Cabaye having given him his France debut in 2010.

Cabaye joined Newcastle in 2011 from Lille, with whom he won the French Ligue 1 title in 2011.
