Cabaye: Newcastle move has taken game to new level

Yohan Cabaye says moving to Newcastle United has taken his game up a level.

Cabaye is expected to start for France tomorrow night against England in their Euros opener.

"At Newcastle, we don't have a single easy game. Each weekend is incredibly difficult, home or away. I feel that gives me an advantage. The manager at Newcastle, Alan Pardew, is pretty much like the coach at Lille, Rudi Garcia - but obviously with an English touch.

"He's very talkative and has helped me to adapt to the tempo of the English game.

"My season at Newcastle has helped me to become stronger both mentally and physically."
