Newcastle defender Javier Manquillo has given Toon fans reasons to be cheerful ahead of Saturday night’s crunch match with Wolves at St James Park’ with his return to training. 

It was feared the Spaniard may be set for a considerable layoff at the start of the month when he came off against Southampton.

However, after issuing a positive update on the 26-year-old last week, Steve Bruce may have the full-back ready for selection sooner than expected after he was pictured back in training yesterday. 

Prior to his injury Manquillo had played 10 Premier League matches, earning an average Sofascore rating of 6.61

Should Javier Manquillo Start When Fit?

Yes
