DARYL Janmaat looks like being fit for Newcastle United’s clash against Aston Villa on Saturday.
The Dutchman limped off against Manchester City last wek with a groin problem.
And with United desperately short of players – with only four recognised defenders available, plus utility man Ryan Taylor – John Carver was fearing the worse.
But the head coach today revealed the right-back’s injury isn’t serious.
“Daryl Janmaat is fine,” Carver revealed. “He was taken off as a precaution last weekend and he has trained well this week.”
Janmaat has started every one of Newcastle’s Premier League games this season.
