CAT­WALK CALLS FOR CABAYE

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY NOVEMBER 1 - By JA­SON MEL­LOR

MODEL pro­fes­sional Yo­han Cabaye is the “man-crush” of the Toon dress­ing room.

Cabaye’s Gal­lic good looks quickly earned the France mid­fielder his “dream­boat” tag from his team-mates.

The chis­eled 26-yearold (right) is a big favourite with fe­male fans, and is also a big hit with his Toon pals, es­pe­cially when he turns up to train­ing dressed like he’s just stepped off he cat­walk.

Rob El­liot reck­ons a side ca­reer in male mod­el­ling beck­ons, and New­cas­tle’s re­serve keeper re­vealed: “I sit in be­tween Yo­han and Ro­main Amal­fi­tano in the dress­ing room. Yo­han al­ways comes in ei­ther in a track­suit or dressed as the GQ man of the month.

“He’s the man-crush of New­cas­tle, isn’t he? Is it tough sit­ting next to such a good look­ing man? I don’t know, you’ll have to ask him!”

Cabaye, a £4.5mil­lion cap­ture from Lille last year, has helped Alan Pardew’s side into the top half of the Premier League.

The Mag­pies are also close to qual­i­fy­ing for the knock-out stages of the Europa League thanks de­fend­ers like James Perch.

He in­sisted: “There’s a strength in depth here. We’ve sur­prised a few peo­ple by how much strength we’ve got in the first team.”
