TEAM NEWS: NEWCASTLE v CITY

27 September 2016

The latest squad news ahead of Wednesday

ALEX Tettey will return to the squad for the midweek trip to Newcastle United.

The 30-year-old midfielder has been ruled out with a hip injury since going off at half-time of the Canaries' 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic earlier this month.

He is fit to face to Magpies, however, confirmed manager Alex Neil when addressing Norwich City TV on Tuesday.

"Alex has been fine. He's done a few days training with us, so he'll be fine for the game," he said.

"It gives us another option, which is good. Al's been an important player for us so it's certainly good to have his availability for the match."

Doubts remain over the availability of Youssouf Mulumbu, who was missing at the weekend due to a foot issue.

Matt Jarvis is a long-term absentee as he continues his recovery from knee surgery in the summer.
