The 25-year-old, who is on bail after being charged with assault and affray, has been back among his team-mates in the last couple of days.

Nigel Pearson: "What I can tell you is that the bail rulings are in place and at some point, Joey had to be introduced to training because at the end of the day, he is one of our players.

"He has got back in in the last couple of days to basically assess his fitness, and we will go from there.

"Outside of that, I can't really comment because I am not totally au fait with the details.

"All I will say that any rules and regulations which are in place will be met by us."
