But what about Siem de Jong, who is finally close to making a return to full training following the freak eye injury he suffered last month.

The 27-year-old was involved in a training-ground accident, causing the Dutchman’s contact lense to inflict the injury.

On Sunday, De Jong tweeted: “Important win yesterday! Last few weeks had treatment on the eye.

“Tomorrow I can finally start individual training #nufc #backsoon.”

De Jong has started just three Premier League games this season, and only four since signing from Ajax for £6million in the summer of 2014.

The Dutch international has been struck down by a series of unfortunate injuries, including a collapsed lung, during his time on Tyneside.
