Haidara spent time on the injury table following the tackle and watched as the Magpies barely escaped relegation to the Championship, eventually finishing 16th.
"For me personally, there were some good times and some other times where I felt I could have done better, looking back," Haidara told the club's official website.
"In terms of the team, we can really aspire to finish in the top half and then push on from there.
"If you look at each individual player in their position, we have got some fantastic quality."
Haidara made eight appearances for the Magpies last season in all competitions.
