The Newcastle United squad has been working hard in training this week in preparation for Saturday’s Premier League match against Brentford at home (3pm kick-off).
Newcastle manager Eddie Howe is hopeful that Allan Saint-Maximin will return from a hamstring injury this weekend after missing four games.
The 25-year-old returned to full training last week but was absent from Newcastle’s Wednesday training session, which included several other first-team players.
Injuries also prevented Jonjo Shelvey, Matt Ritchie, Alexander Isak, Karl Darlow, and Emil Krafth from being photographed.
Joelinton, who has been out with a knee injury, was spotted in training on Wednesday, but Kieran Trippier, Paul Dummett, and Javier Manquillo were all missing from the club’s training gallery, despite the fact that no new injuries have been reported.
Jay Turner-Cooke, a teenage midfielder who was initially called up to Eddie Howe’s squad last season, trained with the first team once more. This season, the 18-year-old has been a regular for The Magpies Under-21s.
Right-back Joe Oliver was another Under-21s player called up to train with the first team this week. The 19-year-old has previously trained with the senior pros after spending eight years at the club’s academy.
The defender signed his first professional contract with the club in 2021 and agreed to a new one this summer.
Jordan Hackett, 18, was also spotted training with the first team on Wednesday at Darsley Park. Following his release from Tottenham Hotspur, the left-back signed as a free agent.
