Newcastle United fans have responded to Florian Lejeune's latest post on Twitter.

Lejeune is back training with his Newcastle teammates and has posted a picture of him doing so this week.

The 27-year-old made his comeback from a long-term injury this week when he featured for the Newcastle Under-23 side against their Norwich City counterparts at Whitley Park.

 

The French defender picked up a knee problem in training back in July and has yet to make a competitive appearance for Rafael Benitez’s side.

Newcastle fans have responded to the message from Lejeune - who earns £38,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com - on Twitter.

Newcastle will return to action this afternoon when they take on Huddersfield Town away from home in the Premier League.

The Magpies are 15th in the league table at the moment with 13 points from 16 matches, just three points above the relegation zone.

With Huddersfield also struggling for survival in the Premier League, Newcastle will fancy their chances of picking up all three points this afternoon.
