SIEM de Jong has revealed he is still a “couple of months” away from returning to action for Newcastle United.
The summer signing has been sidelined since early September with a thigh injury, but is now ready to walk again without crutches.
The Dutchman posted on Facebook: “On my way back to Newcastle.
“Just saw the surgeon in London and all looks good.
“I can slowly start building up strength again and start walking without crutches.
“Still a couple of months to go but I’m going to work hard and I’m sure I will get back stronger!”
