Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has stepped up his efforts to play a part in the club’s fight for Premier League survival after re-joining his team-mates in training.

A statement on the club’s official website, www.nufc.co.uk, 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.” The form of Isaac Hayden and academy graduate Sean Longstaff in the absence of the injured Shelvey, Mohamed Diame and Ki Sung-yueng has been exemplary, although the former Liverpool man’s craft and guile will provide manager Rafael Benitez, who has been careful to nurse him through his latest setback, with a new and much-needed weapon for a crucial run-in.



The 26-year-old former England international was able to take some part in Wednesday morning’s session at the club’s warm-weather training camp in Spain as he works to shake off a thigh injury which has limited him to just eight league starts so far this season.

Shelvey was joined on the training pitch by defender Paul Dummett, who is determined to make up for lost time after missing the last eight games with the latest recurrence of a hamstring problem which has troubled him for some time.

The manager has stated in the past and all players are the same, everyone wants competition to be in the team, it brings out the best in players.”

New signings Miguel Almiron and Antonio Barreca are among them and could get a chance to further gel with their new colleagues in Saturday’s friendly ahead of the crucial showdown with bottom-of-the-table Huddersfield at St James’ Park a week later.
