Mehdi Abeid hails Cabaye impact at Newcastle

Mehdi Abeid is happy there's so many French players now at Newcastle United.

Still just 19, Abeid is learning all of the time, not least from his senior French countryman Yohan Cabaye who illuminated St James' Park with his first senior goal against Wigan.

Abeid told the Evening Chronicle: "Yohan was a really good player in France - he won a lot of things with Lille.

"He's a really good player, and a good person.

"I'm really not surprised what level he's at this season. I hope he does well every game."
