Cabaye desperate for Newcastle return

Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye is desperate to return to action this weekend.

The Frenchman has missed the past three Magpies matches because of a suspension which was received in late January in an FA Cup tie at Brighton & Hove Albion.

Newcastle host Wolves on Saturday as the Premier League returns and Cabaye is excited about being back in action.

"Three matches out was so long for me, and then another week without a fixture as well," Cabaye told the club's official website.

"It was very frustrating how it happened at Brighton but that is football and I have learned from it.

"But I have worked hard to be ready and fit again. During my time out I have been training with the team as normal but also training on my own at home.

"I wanted to stay as fit as possible so have been running and using the gym at home. If the manager selects me against Wolves I will be ready."
