The 26-year-old England international is nearing a comeback, with the clash against Huddersfield later this month in his sights Jonjo Shelvey is closing in on a return to action for Newcastle United.

The midfielder has made just eight starts in the Premier League this season, having been hampered by a thigh problem, and has not featured for the Magpies since January 5.

But Shelvey, 26, is now nearing full fitness and took part in a training session on Wednesday morning with the first team at the club’s warm weather training camp in Spain.

A statement on Newcastle United’s official website said: “The second day of Newcastle United’s Spanish training camp saw Jonjo Shelvey step up his return from a thigh injury.

“Midfield ace Shelvey joined in with some of Wednesday morning’s session and it is hoped he will continue to edge nearer to a return to action over the next few days – although he won’t be involved in Saturday’s friendly against CSKA Moscow.” His return to training is a major boost to Rafael Benitez as he battles to keep the club in the Premier League.

Newcastle are sitting just a point above the relegation zone following Monday night’s 1-1 draw with Wolves at Molineux, when they conceded a controversial late equaliser.

With no game this weekend due to the FA Cup, Newcastle do not play again until February 23 – against Huddersfield at St James’ Park – and Benitez will be hopeful Shelvey can feature.
