Newcastle star announces he’s now back in training after injury

7 years ago

Newcastle star Siem De Jong has announced that he has now returned to light training after his early season injury.

The Dutch international midfielder now looks hopefully to be on course for a playing return early in the new year, something which looked the best case scenario immediately after his operation.

The former Ajax man has only played 99 minutes of Premier League football for United and will hope to be back in action before he turns twenty six in late January.

Using his Instagram account, De Jong posted;

“Finally my boots back on! First session outside.” #injury #NUFC #adidas

In recent days Alan Pardew has said that he hopes that Newcastle can now start adding ‘flair and quality’ to the discipline and hard work that have been the main driving forces in United’s recent run.

Siem De Jong looks to be the ideal candidate to deliver that and we await with interest to see what he can bring to the new look team.
