Cape Town - Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Yohan Cabaye admits he is growing frustrated at a lack of playing time at Parc des Princes this season.

The 28-year-old joined Les Parisiens in January from Newcastle and has made 22 appearances for the club, of which 13 have been starts.

However, Cabaye has increasingly found himself on the fringes of Laurent Blanc's side, having played just 15 minutes in Sunday's 1-1 draw with Monaco as PSG's early-season struggles continued.

The defending Ligue 1 champions have drawn six of their first nine games, winning the other three, and the France international is becoming disillusioned with his bit-part role.

"This doesn't suit me. I've not spoken to Blanc about my situation," Cabaye told L'Equipe.

"I am 28-years-old and not just starting out. I won't change my style now. The coach's choices must be respected, but I won't quit.

"I have the character and my goal is to show what I can do on pitch. I know I must play very well in order to keep my place in team."
