Sean Longstaff is still here, despite the mounting speculation over his future.
Reports in the North West continue to insist that a bid for Sean Longstaff will arrive imminently from Manchester United, but Longstaff is back on Tyneside.
The midfielder saw his breakthrough campaign ended early due to a knee-ligament injury he suffered in March, yet his rehabilitation has been progressing well.
In fact, the 21-year-old appeared delighted to be at the Benton Training Centre, giving a thumbs up to the cameras as he walked past.
What's more, Isaac Hayden - who handed in a transfer request last summer and still wants to depart - was not pictured arriving back at the training ground initially, although club photos later showed he was back.
No doubt Ashley will be rubbing his hands at the prospect of Man Utd making noises about Longstaff.
£40m in Ashley's arse pocket? Possibly.
