Newcastle United have not had the best start to the Premier League this season, and things off the field would not have helped a great deal either.
The Magpies are yet to record their first win of the campaign, although they have played against some of the division’s toughest opponents.
Rafa Benitez’s side have looked impressive in a couple of their matches, however, they have lacked quality at times, which has also cost them dearly.
Florian Lejeune’s absence through injury has been felt as the Toon Army have leaked a number of goals, however, a positive update appears to be on the horizon.

The club took to Instagram to post a photo of the defender working hard in the gym to recover from the knee injury he picked up in the summer.
Benitez’s side have looked rather poor at the back and Lejeune’s presence in defence has been sorely missed this season.
Despite the arrivals of Federico Fernandez and Fabian Schar in the summer, the Frenchman would likely have started the majority of Newcastle’s games alongside Jamaal Lascelles after an encouraging start to his career on Tyneside.
He is expected to miss the majority of the campaign, however, this latest update will give fans a sense of optimism that he will make a much-needed return in the near future.
