There’s some excellent news for Newcastle fans today that Siem de Jong is ready to return to training after suffering his collapsed lung in early February, when he was so close to a return to the first team.
Siem de Jong – to return to training
At that time he was said to be out for eight weeks, but it looks like he is ready to resume training – at least on his own to begin with.
This is what Siem has said on his Twitter account:
“The last X-ray was all good. So I will start training for myself again.”
Of course the priority is making sure Siem is OK physically, and that he doesn’t come back too early, but hopefully the problem he had that caused him to have two collapsed lungs in 18 months has now been fixed.
That would be good news indeed.
Siem is not only a classy player who can score goals, but he is also a leader and strong in the dressing room, and we need some of that leadership right now.
So just having Siem back in training and maybe even part of the match day squad will have very beneficial effects on the team.
It’s good news about Siem de Jong, and we don’t get much good news these days.
Now we need to hear that Rolando Aarons is fully recovered from his hamstring problems and we may even be back in business.
