Cabaye underwent the surgery earlier this week after being sidelined since the defeat at home to West Ham on November 11.

The French international was happy with the operation and is hopeful of being fit to return to action for Alan Pardew's side in early February.

"Surgery went off smoothly. It was done in two steps as the surgeon told me - on Monday right side and Tuesday left side," Cabaye told L'Equipe.

"Being back to competition early in February? That is the objective."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
