A lot of Newcastle United fans remember the days of Yohan Cabaye as the Evening Chronicle continue their discussion for moments of the decade.

One of the selections for the top ten players was, of course, the Frenchman who may have left in bad circumstances but provided two and a half years of joy to many Toon fans.

Cabaye, who is now rated at £1.8m, was a dream in the midfield.

He was the perfect combination of technical ability and midfield bite.

He quickly became a fan-favouite thanks to numerous accomplished displays and stunning goals and has to be considered one of our most important signings.

Picked up for just £4.3m in the summer of 2011 – Cabaye became one of the Premier League’s best midfielders and played a crucial role in our best season in recent years when we finished fifth.

However, unfortunately, when PSG came calling in January 2014, Mike Ashley and Joe Kinnear decided to cash in, and our season unraveled from there.

Was Cabaye Graham Carr's best signing for Newcastle?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Cabaye played 93 games for the Toon scored 14 goals and provided 18 assists, and he will always be remembered fondly by the Geordie faithful.
