Have Newcastle United finally replaced Yohan Cabaye – two years after he left St James's Park?

Moussa Sissoko believes the club has found a player with Cabaye's range of passing in midfield.

The striker, on a half-season loan from AS Roma, played in last night's Under-21 Premier League defeat to Stoke City.
