Jermain Defoe is edging closing to a return after taking part in full training this week.
The Bournemouth striker has been sidelined since fracturing his ankle at Stamford Bridge in December, but has made excellent progress, and he could be included in matchday squad taking on Newcastle this weekend. In the 11 games Defoe has missed, the Cherries have only tasted defeat twice in the league – at Man City and Huddersfield – a run of games which includes victories over Arsenal and Chelsea helping Eddie Howe to a Manager of the Month award in January. During that time, Callum Wilson has really stepped to the fore along with teammates Josh King, Junior Stanislas and Ryan Fraser to carry the Cherries from the relegation places up-to 10th. However, a hugely disappointing result last time out [a 4-1 defeat at the John Smith’s Stadium] may see changes and Defoe could be named amongst the substitutes to add some attacking threat from the bench.
