Newcastle despite speculation he could move on in the summer.

The Frenchman has been linked with a summer exit after what has largely been a difficult second season in the Premier League, but with the club battling to preserve their top flight status the midfielder insists he is happy at St James’ Park and refused to discuss the speculation surrounding his future.

Cabaye told the Chronicle: “I have three years’ contract left and now my mind is just to save the club. We have two cup finals then it will be the holidays.

“But I am at Newcastle. I don’t want to think about the future with two games left. I am very, very happy to play for this club and these fans.”

Newcastle travel to already relegated QPR on Sunday and a point may be enough to ensure survival, if Wigan lose at Arsenal on Tuesday.

Cabaye is well aware that his side have not performed to the best of their abilities over the course of the campaign but is confident they can avoid the drop.

He added: “We all made some mistakes at the start of the season – that’s why we are fighting for relegation.

“But if we learn from our mistakes, no problem. We are only human and we all make mistakes, but now is time to learn and prepare.

“We need to finish strongly and then prepare well for next season. We have to be ready to fight and play and be ready again in the Premier League, like we were last season.”

    Try writing an article that actual has some bearing… on anything!

      Yes Camwelsh, everyone in the media is conspiring against you, that’s why you’re in danger of relegation.

      The speculation is simple – Yohan Cabaye is your best player,with many admirers in the top six, including Arsenal, and the team have grossly underperformed this year, leading to speculation that he could seek a move in the summer, or that interested clubs may decide now is the time to lure him away.

      If there was no speculation whatsoever, he wouldn’t be saying things such as “I’ve got three years left on my contract” during interviews, players don’t just inform journalists on things like that for the sake of it.

      Try commenting without being so biased. A lot of clubs would sign Cabaye if the price was right.
