However, Newcastle now have one space in their 25-man squad after seeing DeAndre Yedlin leave in the transfer window.

And according to Shields Gazette, this could  allow Atsu to make a surprise comeback for Newcastle, though it may also be that Bruce will look to promote someone from the Under-23s instead.

Atsu has had a strange career, having previously struggled to make an impression at the likes of Chelsea and Everton, though he’s also shown moments of real quality.

Can the 29-year-old now revive his career at St James’ Park?
