Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has no worries about midfielder Yohan Cabaye’s transfer clause that could see him leave in the summer, as reported by the Chronicle.

Cabaye has the option of buying out the rest of his contract, making him a free agent who can move to any club with no transfer fees involved.

Newcastle would be owed around £6million from the Frenchman if he decided to take up the option, although Pardew is confident that won’t be the case.

The Toon boss is adamant that the midfielder, who has been tracked by Arsenal, Manchester United and PSG in recent months, is still committed to the shirt and will definitely be here when the January transfer window closes.

“It doesn’t worry me,” Pardew said.

“The point you are raising is something that has been raised at an international level, it’s not isolated to Yohan Cabaye.

“Whether that’s possible, I don’t know, it’s not my department, if I am honest.”

“The most important thing is that he has two years left on his contract in the summer and we are looking forward to him playing for Newcastle for the rest of this season, and we will take it from there in the summer.”
