In an interview with the club's website, Cabaye suggested he was looking forward to the new season with the Toon.
“We had a lot of injuries to players as well, with big players missing, and that was hard when we were playing in the Premier League and the Europa League.
“Yet we fought together, stayed together and fought to be a Premier League squad next season which is the most important thing.
“We have to learn from our mistakes but the main thing was safety and the club staying in the Premier League. For the future, we learnt a lot.”
