Jonjo Shelvey, Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson have not been training with the rest of the squad in recent weeks due to their respective injury issues. Meanwhile, Bruno Guimaraes is understood to be back in contention.

White has also been hit with his own injury problems this season and had been nursing a groin injury prior to his return to training. The teenager has featured in just two matches for Newcastle’s Under-21s side in all competitions so far this season.

He signed a new contract at the club last season having spent time out on loan at Hartlepool United.
