The Netherlands international is part of the Magpies’ squad for tomorrow’s Premier League clash against Manchester United away from home at Old Trafford.
De Jong’s Newcastle career has been riddled with injuries and fitness issues, but he seems to be on the mend.
The 26-year-old former Ajax star is upbeat ahead of tomorrow’s match and has posted the following exciting message on Twitter:
Newcastle have made a disappointing start to the 2015-16 Premier League season.
The Magpies drew 2-2 with Southampton at St. James’ Park in their opening league game of the campaign.
Steve McClaren’s side went down 2-0 to Swansea City away from the home at the Liberty Stadium last weekend.
Newcastle will be determined to win against United at Old Trafford tomorrow, but the Red Devils are in better form and will be favourites.
