Ginola has told Cabaye he needs to play well for Newcastle if he is to fulfil his ambitions for club and country.
"The team needs him, he's a good player. He's a big asset for the club.
"I don't think there are many players as good as him. "He can deliver, he can score goals, he can tackle and track back, he's got good vision. He's a complete player.
"They need him - but he knows as well that he needs Newcastle. "When you look forward in your career, you play for a club and first of all you need to be good with your club.
"If you want to expect anything else, first things first you need to play well for Newcastle, and then things will follow."
