Yohan Cabaye: I will excite Newcastle fans

Former Lille midfielder Yohan Cabaye has promised Newcastle United fans excitement.

His flying visit to Tyneside lasted just over 24 hours, but he was viewing property yesterday - a good sign that he is ready to settle down and make a success of his big move.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "I hope I can excite the fans here with my football, and I would love to score for Newcastle and see the reaction of the supporters at St James' Park.

"But first I must adapt to the football and the city, and get to know my team-mates.

"I also have to adapt to the style of play in England, as it's very different to France. This is the first time I have moved from my home region, and I want to be ready for the new season."
