Newcastle United defender Paul Dummett has been out of action for the last few games and withdrew from the Welsh national squad to focus on a full recovery and to rebuild his fitness this international break as he continues to come back from the hamstring injury that sidelined him last month.

In some quarters this ‘surprise’ return is being angled to be a frustration for Ryan Giggs, but given those outlets confirm themselves he withdrew to build his fitness, I’m sure Giggsy isn’t that surprised that he’s actually, erm, back out on the training pitch building his fitness.

Controversy sells in today’s modern media though doesn’t it!

The 27-year-old has missed our last two Premier League games so on an options front, having him back out on the grass can only be considered to be a good thing by manager Rafa Benitez, as he continues to be his first choice at left fullback even if it’s no great secret Benitez was looking to strengthen the position over the summer.
