Newcastle United defender Kieran Trippier could be back in first-team contention in the next ’10 days’, according to The Chronicle.
While there is still no definite date or game that has been mentioned as a target for his return, these new claims suggest he might just be available for selection when Liverpool come to town on April 30th.
The 31-year-old has been side-lined for eight weeks now with a metatarsal injury and Eddie Howe and his staff will be wary not to rush him back too quickly and risk further set-backs.
However, the England international has recently been working with physio Dave Galley and will soon start to build his fitness back up in an attempt to return for our final Premier League fixtures.
After signing from Atletico Madrid in January, the La Liga champion played a crucial role in not only organising and solidifying the defence but contributing at the other end as well with two huge free-kicks against Everton and Aston Vila.
So, despite being ruled out of tomorrow’s clash with Crystal Palace and Saturday’s trip to Norwich looking likely to come too soon, we may just see him back in the squad for next weekend’s clash with Liverpool.
