Influential French midfielder Yohan Cabaye is back in the Newcastle squad for tomorrow's trip to Norwich.

The 26-year-old midfielder has not played since November 11 and has had surgery on a groin problem. He is likely to start on the bench tomorrow.

Jonas Gutierrez is also expected to be fit to face Chris Hughton's side while Steven Taylor is back in training. Captain Fabricio Coloccini and striker Papiss Cisse, who missed the FA Cup defeat at Brighton, are both fit and should figure against the Canaries.

'We're getting some senior bodies back in and around the team,' said manager Alan Pardew.
