Ki joined Newcastle in the summer transfer window after leaving Swansea City at the end of the last season.
The 29-year-old central midfielder arrived at St. James' Park on a free transfer and was expected to be a major player in Rafael Benitez’s team.
Ki was signed as a replacement for 22-year-old Spanish midfielder Mikel Merino, who joined Real Sociedad from Newcastle in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by Sky Sports to be worth £10 million.
The Chronicle has suggested that Ki’s lack of playing time is down to his lack of mobility.
Perhaps in the coming weeks the South Korea international will get the chance to play for the Magpies on a regular basis.
