Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye is champing at the bit to make his return against Wolves on Saturday after being out of action for nearly a month.

The France international is back in contention after serving a three-match ban for violent conduct following an incident involving Brighton's Adam El-Abd during the FA Cup tie at the Amex Stadium on January 28. The 26-year-old former Lille player is desperate to make his return and revealed he has upped his training in a bid to secure a place in Alan Pardew's side.

"Three matches out was so long for me, and then another week without a fixture as well," Cabaye told the club's official website, "It was very frustrating how it happened at Brighton but that is football and I have learned from it. But I have worked hard to be ready and fit again."
