Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew says the club need to "resolve the situation" surrounding midfielder Yohan Cabaye.
The French International has missed Newcastle's last two Premier League games after Arsenal made a bid of around £10 million for the 27-year-old. Pardew admitted last week that Cabaye's "head had been turned" by interest from the Gunners and has now said the player's future needs to be decided.
