John Carver has revealed Siem de Jong could be a part of the Newcastle squad this weekend as the Geordies take on West Ham knowing a win would guarantee their top-flight status.
De Jong made a surprise return ahead of schedule against Swansea following a collapsed lung but the Dutch play-maker has missed the 2-previous games citing thigh muscle weakness. Only a victory on Sunday would assure Newcastle of another season in the BPL with Hull City only 2-points behind with superior goal difference and the inclusion of De Jong would provide a welcome boost given the importance of the match. Carver may also be tempted to call upon some of his so-called ‘big guns’ to help his team over the line despite fitness concerns; Papiss Cisse and Rolando Aarons have recently returned from long-term absences but the pair undoubtedly add quality and could be risked in what would be one final roll of the dice.
