Cape Town - Yohan Cabaye has joined Dubai based club Al Nasr following the expiry of his contract at Crystal Palace.

Al Nasr on Tuesday confirmed that they signed the former French international on a two-year deal after his contract at Palace ended on June 30.

Cabaye, who joined the Eagles from Paris Saint-Germain in 2015, has 48 caps for France and played for Newcastle United in the English Premier League.

The midfielder was a regular for Roy Hodgson's side in the 2017/18 season as the Eagles managed to avoid relegation in their final matches of the season.

Cabaye made 106 appearances in his three years at Selhurst Park.

The 32-year old also confirmed his move to Al Nasr on his social media account and thanked Palace's supporters for their love in the three years that he was with the club.

"First of all, I would like to say thank you to everyone at the Crystal Palace's family," Cabaye said on his social media account.

"You have been amazing with me since day one and it's been a pleasure to work alongside you.

"You will always be special to me and I will never forget my time at Selhurst.

"Huge thank you to the fans also, if we are still in the Premier League, it's also because of your support."
