‘Big relief’ – Newcastle United fans on Twitter react to latest positive update

Although the Magpies propping up our bar all had the same question of whether he’ll be fit for this Saturday’s visit of fellow strugglers, Southampton.

The news comes at a good time for Shelvey’s Newcastle, who sit dangerously close to the drop zone after an indifferent first campaign back in England’s top division. Shelvey and company will have to be at their best to reach the magic 40-point mark and ensure that the Toon Army retain their Premier League status for another season.
