Beye said: "Alan has had a big impact, and you can see that in the team.
"He's a winner. His mentality is like that and I think he brings that to the team.
"We have more spirit - Alan has tried to give that to the team. Everyone believes we can be safe. There are 15 points to get, and it's not finished. He's from this area and knows Newcastle better than anyone. He doesn't want to see his club go to the Championship.
"That's why he tries his best every day for the team, and why we try give our best."
