However, given that the same man went on to pronounce Cayabe’s name wrong, and then incorrectly claim credit for the signings of Tim Krul and James Perch, Newcastle fans weren’t naïve enough to take too much from his proclamations that their key midfield creator would be staying on Tyneside.
As we all know - Mike Ashley makes the decisions at St James'' Park - Kinnear is a gobshite who couldn''t find the hole in his own arse!
Will he look stupid when Cabaye moves on? Already seen as a clown, what difference does it make?
Monaco have already spent £60m on two midfielders this summer (Porto’s Joao Moutinho and James Rodriguez), while PSG have been too busy trying to sort out their managerial situation to focus on transfers.
Unfortunately for Newcastle fans, Madrid-bound Carlo Ancelotti has been replace by Laurent Blanc who is a known admirer of Cabaye.
With Blanc now confirmed at the helm, Newcastle will be braced for a fresh bid as soon as next week from the favourites for the French title.
