Jamal Lewis is gearing up for another season at Newcastle United after featuring heavily in his debut campaign and posted a number of pictures on his Instagram story after featuring in the Magpies’ 1-1 draw with Rotherham United.

The 23-year-old put up two candid pictures of himself in action at the AESSEAL New York Stadium before reposting a training picture with Jacob Murphy, captioning the snap ‘WB union’ in reference to their wing-back roles.

Lewis joined Newcastle from Norwich City in 2020 and has gone on to make 26 appearances in all competitions, notching one assist. He’s expected to be a regular this campaign and is improving his fitness through pre-season friendlies.

The Northern Ireland international played 45 minutes in Newcastle’s 1-0 defeat to York City, had 85 minutes in their 3-2 win over Doncaster Rovers and played a full 90 minutes in their 1-1 draw with Rotherham United.

It remains to be seen how Newcastle’s season will go, but supporters should be optimistic about Lewis. With a year under his belt and more Premier League added, he should be a more formidable opponent for teams to come up against.
