Yohan Cabaye is currently available on a free transfer, and West Ham should not hesitate to sign him.

The Hammers have looked woefully short in central midfield during their first two Premier League games, and the Frenchman could make a real difference for them.

The 33-year-old is a cultured central midfielder with a superb range of passing. He would provide West Ham with some much needed fluidity in the middle of the park – something they really lack when Mark Noble isn’t playing.

Cabaye is also vastly experienced when it comes to the Premier League, having played for Newcastle United and Crystal Palace for six years combined.


The midfielder has also won three league titles with Lille and Paris Saint-Germain, as well as earning 48 international caps for France.

Whilst the Frenchman might not play regularly for West Ham, he would undoubtedly be a useful squad member. And he would provide Manuel Pellegrini with another top quality option in central midfield.

The only downside for the Hammers is that he hasn’t played competitively since January.

His availability on a free transfer, however, makes signing him an absolute no-brainer for West Ham.
