After Eric Bautheac's style caught the attention at Brisbane Roar, French players are back in vogue down under. 

Starting with a former English Premier League star who undoubtedly bring a touch of the X-factor to Australia. 

Agents, get in quick for these three. 

Yohan Cabaye

A-League clubs: here’s a genuine marquee.

The 33-year-old is a free agent after a six-month stint with UAE outfit Al-Nasr ended in January. 

It’s rumoured St Etienne could be trying to sign the former EPL star who played at Newcastle United and Crystal Palace.

His former London club was also thought to be interested in January but as we speak, Cabaye hasn't yet found a club.

Cabaye made 109 appearances for the Eagles over three full seasons at Selhurst Park.

In that time, the Frenchman netted 10 times in all competitions and was quickly a fan favourite of the Palace faithful. 

He played in the EPL last year and at 33 could easily be fit enough for an A-League season given the huge off-season (around 15 weeks).

Cabaye would be a sensational signing.
