No Riots For Cabaye Just Yet

It's the same questions ... and the same answers ... at this time of the transfer window.

We've been there before - and so has Pardew - so he is just repeating what he has said already - it will take a lot of money if a club wants to buy Cabaye.

"If you sell Cabaye - yer gonna have a riot on yer hands!" sing the fans, but there's no riot just yet.

Alan Pardew: "We have had offers on the final day of the transfer window before. That's a worry.

"We've had that before with Andy Carroll and it was a tricky time to lose Andy when we did. We managed to overcome that. But you don't want to make it a habit.

"For me, of course I want to keep him.

"If one of the big clubs comes with a massive offer we will have to react to that.

"As it stands at the moment there have still been no offers. He remains our player and myself and the fans would love to see him stay come September, and still be in a black and white shirt.

"The speculation about Cabaye is right.

"He's a top player and I wouldn't expect no less. It's good for his confidence.

"He's not caused me one problem and he's worked really hard. His professionalism has been brilliant and our fans need to know that."
