Newcastle star Yohan Cabaye has admitted that he was left disappointed after his proposed move to Premier League giants Arsenal failed to materialise.
Cabaye looked desperate to make the switch to north London and after Arsenal made a bid for the star, it looked likely that the midfielder would end up at the Emirates.
However, the French star has insisted that he has moved on from the summer events that meant he stayed at St James Park.
When discussing his failed attempt at moving to Arsenal, Cabaye told reporters: "Was my failed transfer to Arsenal difficult to swallow? At first, yes.
"But you have to quickly get focused again, because if you go on thinking about it you have a grudge against a lot of people and that is useless.
"I quickly forget about it and go back to work.
"The fans’ state of mind was due to what the club wanted to let them know.
"As I didn’t talk and I won’t give any explanation about what happened, they chose their side. That is part of a career, but I bear no grudge against no one. I accept it, it is in the past."
Cabaye has also insisted that the only person that can explain why he wasn't able to move to the Emirates in the summer is Newcastle's director of football Joe Kinnear.
Cabaye continued by saying: "The only person who can explain what happened is Joe Kinnear. If he is honest, he will tell it. Otherwise it will not get out of my month."
The midfielder, who is currently out on international duty with the French team, has played his way back into the Geordies side in recent weeks after missing parts of the early season because of the transfer saga.
