Newcastle United will be looking to turn things around after the current international break, as they still remain winless this season.
The Magpies are sitting with Cardiff City at the bottom of the Premier League but will have been encouraged by some of the performances they have put in.
Rafa Benitez’s side have had one of the more difficult schedules in the league so far and will look to use those games as a chance to start building on something.
And, according to the club’s official Twitter account, it appears that they could be about to be handed a huge boost ahead of their match with Brighton and Hove Albion when the action returns.
Having missed United's last two games due to injury, defender @PaulDummett was back in training this morning.

Paul Dummett was shown making his return to first-team training after he had recently been sidelined with a minor knock in recent weeks.
The Wales international had been absent for their last two games, which were consecutive defeats to Leicester City and Manchester United.
Benitez and Newcastle will be delighted to have Dummett back in training and on course to be available for their Premier League contest against Brighton, provided he does not suffer any complications during training.
The defender is considered to be their best option at right-back, with Javier Manquillo recently being used to fill in for him, and his reappearance will be a timely boost to the squad and the fans.
Newcastle are starting to enter the stages of sheer desperation at trying to pick up points, and that elusive first win, however, Brighton have been playing well this season and they could well fancy their chances at St. James’ Park.
