Ex-Newcastle star Bernard expects big things from Cabaye

Former Newcastle United star Olivier Bernard is backing new signing Yohan Cabaye to be a big hit.

The former Lille midfielder completed his move to Newcastle yesterday.

Bernard told the Evening Chronicle: "I've seen Cabaye play a few times, and I think he's almost the complete midfield player.

"He'll do a fantastic job. He's a tidy player, and a very neat passer of the ball.

"He rarely loses the ball, and he's great going forward. He's a box-to-box player, similar to Kieron Dyer when he came to Newcastle.

"He'll organise the side, and would be a very important player for Newcastle."
