Cabaye has missed large chunks of this season due to persistent injuries but boss Alan Pardew is set to make him captain next season if Fabricio Coloccini leaves in the summer as expected.
Ashley put a £25million price tag on all of his first team players last summer and is set to warn off any approaches again when this season comes to an end.
Cabaye was an unused sub as France beat Georgia in their World Cup qualifier on Friday evening and a number of fellow compatriots arriving at St James Park in January will have enticed the 27 year old to stay in the North East.
Newcastle will make Cabaye their main man next season as they look to vastly improve on this seasons poor showing in the Premier League.
