Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew admits that he is concerned about the physical and mental health of midfielder Yohan Cabaye.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has claimed that he is worried about the physical and mental state of midfielder Yohan Cabaye.

The Frenchman has played 30 times for the Magpies this season in a campaign that has seen their Europa League adventure affect their Premier League form.

"Cabaye is probably my biggest worry," quotes Pardew as saying. "The rest of them are really sound physically and mentally.

"But Cabaye is our best player in terms of intelligence on the pitch and he needs to play. That's why he has played almost every minute."

Newcastle, who are five points clear of the relegation zone with five games to play, travel to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
