Alan Pardew: Newcastle boss planning to hold talks with Yohan Cabaye

The Gunners saw a bid rejected for Cabaye last month and he sat out the Magpies' first two games of the new season as speculation continued over a possible move to the Emirates.

Cabaye returned to the side for last weekend's win over Fulham and was jeered by some supporters after coming off the bench for the final 25 minutes at St James' Park.

Pardew admits he will talk with Cabaye and his representatives to try and get the midfielder back on track now the transfer window has closed.

"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," Pardew told reporters.

"We will speak with Yohan and with his representatives to make sure that we go forward hand-in-hand."

Cabaye has been left out of France's squad for this week's World Cup qualifiers in the wake of missing two games at the start of the season and Pardew admits the omission has come as a surprise to the midfielder.

"The guy has a World Cup at the end of the year and he is a big part of France's plans. He hasn't been picked this week and I think that was a bit of a shock to him," added Pardew.

"It was only because of the [transfer] situation, because I think he's nailed on in their team. That whole situation will resolve itself."
