Sky Bet have suspended betting on Yohan Cabaye joining Crystal Palace following a number of large bets at short odds.
The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder has been the subject of media reports linking him with a permanent transfer to the Eagles, thought to be in the region of £10m.
Cabaye, who played 79 times for Newcastle, was heavily backed to join the south London club at as short as 1/10 on Wednesday morning, which prompted the bookmaker to suspend betting.
The 29-year-old, who started just 21 Ligue 1 games in the two seasons he spent in France, has spoken of his intent to leave PSG and return to the Premier League to improve his chances of featuring at Euro 2016.
Sky Bet's Simon Thompson said: "After offering odds of 12/1 in April that Cabaye would sign for Crystal Palace in the current transfer window, the odds have gradually tumbled.
"He has been odds-on to reunite with Alan Pardew since June and, after a number of large bets, we have now been forced to suspend betting."
