Newcastle United midfielder Siem de Jong back in two months

Newcastle United midfielder Siem de Jong expects to be back in training in "a couple of months".

Newcastle United midfielder Siem de Jong has revealed that his return from injury will be complete in "a couple of months".

The £6m summer signing from Ajax has been out of action since September due to a thigh injury.

The 25-year-old Dutchman now expects to be back in training at the end of the year.

He wrote on his official Facebook page: "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!"

Newcastle picked up their first win of the season on Saturday with a 1-0 victory at home to Leicester City.
