Newcastle United legend David Ginola is delighted with the impact made by French duo Yohan Cabaye and Hatem Ben Arfa.

The midfield pair have helped Newcastle within touching distance of a top four finish.

Ginola told the Evening Chronicle: “Players like Yohan Cabaye and Hatem Ben Arfa were already well-known stars in France.

“It’s no surprise that they are helping Newcastle push forward towards Europe. Cabaye won the double last season with Lille and is a born winner. Hatem is an amazingly talented player from France who we all knew about.

“He is a player that can produce magic when nobody expects it.

“Fingers crossed, he will be on the plane with Les Bleus for Euro 2012.”
