On the eve of the new season, Cabaye was the subject of a bid from Arsenal and the Frenchman was keen on a move to the Emirates.

As the deal failed to materialise, Cabaye has since apologised for his stance and is now firmly back as a key figure in Alan Pardew's side.

"I have moved on, and I want to be focused on the team's future," Cabaye told the Shields Gazette.

"The summer was what it was. I'm strong in my mind and I'm positive.

"I want to do my best on the pitch to help my team-mates and everyone on the pitch.

"I respect everyone every day. I will do that until the end."

Struggles

Cabaye admits that he and the squad are struggling to explain why they have made a poor start to the new season.

"I don't know how we can explain that," he said.

"We don't want to be in trouble like last season. We have to act quickly, and this weekend at Cardiff is going to be really hard, but we have the quality to do well and get a result.

"But it's not enough to say that - we have to do it on the pitch. We have to get the points to go up the table.

"Now we have to come back and do the basics and play as a team. The 11 players have to fight for the team and the man next to you.

"If we do that, we can get some good results."
