Remy Cabella has also been backed to fill the void left by Cabaye, but the Magpies boss believes there are several players capable of doing so.
Alan Pardew: “They're different players (Cabella and Cabaye).
"What Remy does in terms of great moments in the game, he can create them - obviously Cabaye could do that so there's a similarity in that.
“You need a framework for those players and a platform to win games. Now we need the other side of it, that special quality that Cabaye gave us, that Demba Ba and Loic Remy gave.
“Cabella is very much a replacement for one of those three names, and de Jong, Riviere, Cundo (Facundo Ferreyra), Rolando (Aarons) and Ayoze (Perez), who came on and did a nice cameo, have got to ring with the same noise bell as those other players.”
