Newcastle United legend Malcolm Macdonald says club owner Mike Ashley intends to sell Yohan Cabaye.

Supermac believes Ashley wants to sell the Frenchman this month, which is why he made public Arsenal's bid.

He told Sky Sports Radio: "That's why Newcastle made Arsenal's offer public to set up a bidding war.

"Mike Ashley will sell anybody as long as he's making a profit, he's a retailer and everything is for sale. If Arsenal offer over £15m for the player, I think Newcastle will sell."
