Yohan Cabaye is set to stay at Newcastle United until the end of the season at least, despite interest from Manchester United and Arsenal, according to the Metro.

The Magpies reportedly have a gentlemen’s agreement in place with the French midfielder, who was the subject of a failed summer bid from Arsene Wenger’s side.

Wenger was set to return with an offer of £20million in January, whilst Manchester United boss David Moyes had also set his sights on Cabaye as the man to strengthen United’s struggling midfield.

However, reports coming out of Tyneside suggest the midfielders agent and the clubs hierarchy agreed Cabaye will remain at St James’s park until the end of the season at least.

Cabaye has been influential in Alan Pardew’s sides rise up the Premier League table.

They currently occupy sixth place in the table, just three points behind Liverpool in fourth.

Pardew believes Cabaye has benefitted from staying at St James’s Park, as he has been allowed to flourish as one of the main men in his team.

‘He is improving because he is in an environment where he has got pole position,’ Pardew said.

‘He has got pole position in my team, and that’s nice for a player like him. You don’t always get that at clubs, you can get lost at some of the bigger clubs.

‘But he has got pole position here and he is enjoying it. He has really got his feathers up at the minute and he can produce any magic he wants for us because he is in that sort of mood.’
