Yohan Cabaye's future at Newcastle is to be resolved, following his failure to secure a move away from the club, according to manager Alan Pardew.
The midfielder was the subject of heavy interest from Arsenal and the Gunners had a £10m bid rejected on the eve of Newcastle's season opener with Manchester City, leaving Pardew furious.
Cabaye played his first game of the season for the club in the win against Fulham on Saturday, and was greeted with a mixed reaction upon taking to the pitch.
And after a move to the Emirates failed to materialise, Pardew wants to hold talks with his player.
He said: "It was important to get him out there on Saturday, it will make it easier to move on although there is a lot of talking to be done between now and Aston Villa.
"We will speak with Yohan and with his representatives to make sure that we go forward hand-in-hand."
Following the bid from Arsenal, Cabaye refused to play for the club in order to try and secure his move to the Londoners, however the Magpies retained a firm stance over their £20m valuation of the midfielder and eventually held onto their prized asset.
