Remy Cabella adamant he will be Newcastle player next season, discusses Carver relationship

Newcastle midfielder Remy Cabella wants to stay at the club.

Newcastle United midfielder Remy Cabella has told French TV channel BeIn Sports that he wants to stay with the Magpies, with quotes reported by Goal.

Cabella, 25, had a huge reputation in France with Montpellier, and his exploits in Ligue 1 led to his move to Tyneside last summer.

Having played at international level for France, Newcastle fans were unsurprisingly excited to see the playmaker in action ahead of this term.

However, in 32 appearances in all competitions this season, Cabella has managed just one goal and two assists in a tough first season in English football.

Cabella has struggled with the physicality of the Premier League so far, and has often been accused of being lazy and not trying hard enough in the Newcastle midfield.

Whilst there haven't really been any rumours about Cabella's future at St. James' Park, Cabella has told BeIn Sports France that he doesn't regret his decision to join the Magpies, and wants to stay at the club for some time yet.

"I made my choice, I accept it. This is my first season, even if it is difficult. I don’t give up. I had a little trouble, but I'm working," said Cabella. "It has never been easy for me since I started my career. I have experienced times more complicated than this one. I have confidence in myself. I know I will soon return [to my best]. I will be a Newcastle player next season. Anyway today I am 100 per cent Magpie. And I'm under contract."

With eight defeats in a row after Saturday's 3-0 loss at Leicester City, Newcastle are plummeting under interim boss John Carver, with many Magpies fans calling for him to go after that defeat against Leicester.

Some have accused Carver of 'losing the dressing room', but Cabella tackled that subject head on, saying he has no rift with Carver and actually likes playing under the Geordie.

"I get along very well with Carver, although he didn’t make me play in the starting XI in the last match. It's his choice," he added. "He hasn’t explained anything to me yet. Thursday I was in starting XI and Friday I wasn't, but he is someone who talks to me a lot, especially in training. He likes me and we laugh with him. The problem is we're not winning matches and we can't find any momentum."
