The Newcastle United Under-21 side will face their Swansea City counterparts this afternoon.
The 29-year-old midfielder will play a role for the Magpies’ youth team against their Swansea City counterparts at Whitley Park.
The Frenchman has been on the sidelines since pre-season, but he returned to training earlier this month and will further step up his comeback to first-team action.
The former Rennes star, who has been on the books of Newcastle since the summer of 2011, played on loan for Ligue 1 outfit En Avant de Guingamp last season.
Newcastle have also announced that Rob Elliot will be involved in today’s match. The 29-year-old goalkeeper is not the first-choice for manager Steve McClaren, and he will be pleased to get some playing time this afternoon.
Elliot, a Republic of Ireland international, has been on the books of the Magpies since 2011.
