Training Ground Photos – Joelinton Back In Training But Saint-Maximin Still Out

Newcastle United have tweeted the following images from today’s training session. There is also a link for the full set of images in the tweet.

We see that Achraf Lazaar has taken no time in getting comfortable back at training. He has just returned from Italy where he failed to secure a move away. All of the players who did not make the squad are still being kept in the fold as Rolando Aarons, Jack Colback, and Henri Saivet can be spotted in these photographs. The only exception appears to be Jamie Sterry, who played with the under 23s earlier in the week.

It is also a relief to see Joelinton back and mixing it up with his teammates. He appears to be recovered from the hip injury suffered at Norwich. We would assume that he will get the start at Tottenham on Sunday.

The same cannot be said for Frenchman Allan Saint-Maximin, who has again missed the full training session. It was reported earlier today that he has been involved in light training since Monday. Allan has been spotted doing some work in the community as he is helping with the NUFC Food Bank.

Keith Downie, however, is reporting that Allan will return to full training later this week. We still don’t think it would be wise to risk him for Tottenham unless he is 100% fit.

Here is a tweet of four pictures showing Andy Carroll and Florian Lejeune on the training field. We can’t wait to see them return to full training. Andy should be ready shortly as his target date for his second debut with the club is between 4 and 5 weeks away. Florian does not have a return date yet as he still recovers from a second serious knee injury.
