... Dutch international Siem de Jong returned to training.

He has missed almost the entire league campaign because of a thigh injury.

He arrived from Ajax in the close-season, but has only made two Premier League appearances before his injury.

The 25-year-old was supposedly signed to replace French international Yohan Cabaye, who move to PSG.

De Jong signed a six-year deal after spending seven years at Ajax, where he won four consecutive Eredivisie titles.

He was seen as Alan Pardew's "marquee signing" of the summer.

Newcastle has not been a happy hunting ground for both De Jong brothers, Luuk had a disasterous loan spell last season.
