Cabaye was a notable absentee as Newcastle were forced to settle for a goalless draw against West Ham at St James' Park on Saturday.

Arsenal have failed with one bid for the France international, and one newspaper report on Sunday claimed he is refusing to play.

Arsene Wenger on Saturday said Cabaye's absence from the Newcastle side was not down to any second offer from Arsenal, and Pardew still hopes to keep the player.

But the United manager wants the issue sorted out quickly either way.

"The Cabaye situation needs to resolve itself one way or the other because if we lose him we need to replace him," Pardew told Sky Sports.

Despite being held by West Ham, Pardew was happy with the performance of his players after they responded to Monday's 4-0 defeat by Manchester City with a clean sheet and a first point of the season.

"We had to dig in after Manchester City and really show our resilience which we did today," added Pardew.

"Defensively we did not put in a bad performance, offensively we know we have to improve, but we had some key players missing today and hopefully when we play Fulham one or two will be back."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
