Statistics show Cabaye has covered 83.5km for the Geordies this season in 648 minutes on the pitch - that’s a whopping 128.9 metres for every minute of play.
He is also third in the tackles tables.
Cabaye said: “I haven’t seen the stats, but it’s nice that these things can be rewarded. My game is to get around the pitch and help my team mates as much as possible.
“I enjoy being on the ball most, but if we haven’t got it [then] it's part of my job to chase it down. My style is always to be involved in the action and receiving the ball."
