Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye says no-one inside the locker room holds a grudge against new Chelsea signing Demba Ba.

Ba quit Toon for Chelsea last week, declaring he was joining 'better players'.

"This is a player who can be counted on. He is always very quiet off the pitch, does not go into town. The less we see, the better he will feel. He always respected the jersey of Newcastle, to the end, and I'm very happy for him.

"But obviously disappointed for the team to lose such a player," said Cabaye.
