Cole urged to return to Lille
Cole has made just two starts under Brendan Rodgers' new-look team, including a midweek run out against Swansea in the League Cup, when the Welsh side defeated the Reds 3-1 at Anfield.
And Newcastle midfielder Cabaye believes that a return to France, where Cole thrived with Lille last season, would be in the best interests of all parties involved.
Cabaye told The Mirror: "It's difficult for him (Cole) because he's not playing so much.
"He did well for Lille and maybe it would be a good choice to go back. He is not playing a lot with Liverpool, so if he wants more games, he can play more there.
"They like him at Lille – the club, the manager and the fans. I heard manager Rudi Garcia was keen to take him back."
Cole made 38 appearances for Lille last term, in contrast to his fringe status back at Liverpool.
