Arsenal target settling back into life at Newcastle

Published Add your comment

Arsenal summer target Yohan Cabaye has settled back into life at Newcastle, according to Toon manager Alan Pardew.

Cabaye was the subject of a £10million bid by Arsenal, which was flatly rejected by Newcastle.

Pardew was left disappointed with the way Arsene Wenger's side launched a bid for the Frenchman on the eve of Newcastle's Premier League opener against Manchester City.

Reports suggest Arsenal will make an improved £15million bid for Cabaye in January. However it seems like the 27-year-old midfielder is happy to stay at St James' Park - for the time being at least.

The Toon boss said: “Yohan stayed behind and has had a full week here.

“He’s been able to get a lot of work done, and his wife has just had a baby too.

“Yohan has just got on with his work and settled down.

“He’s getting on with the job in hand.

“He’s been terrific, and he’s just got his head down to get on with life.”

Cabaye, who was left out of Newcastle's opening three games of the season due to his future being far from certain, made his first competitive appearance of the season against Fulham when he played the last 25 minutes of their slender 1-0 victory.

Pardew is likely to hand his star midfielder a start on Saturday as Newcastle face Aston Villa at Villa Park on Saturday.
