The Newcastle United Blog | The 24-year-old defender may still have a future at Newcastle

We have written off defender Jamaal Lewis this year, since he was dropped from Newcastle’s 25-man Premier League squad in January.

But head coach Eddie Howe mentioned the former Norwich City left-back today during his press conference for the match at Norwich tomorrow afternoon.

Jamaal has therefore been hampered by a lingering groin injury and Howe hopes, with time off, getting the necessary medical attention and surgeries, he will be fully fit for pre-season training.

Then it’s up to the 26-time Northern Ireland International to impress Howe in pre-season.

Lewis is a bit like Miguel Almiron in that they are skillful players with good character, and Eddie Howe’s job is to get the best out of them – and he knows it.

Lewis and Almiron may well be with us for next season.

The defender has a five-year contract which he signed in September 2020 and has featured 32 times for Newcastle.

What do you think?
