Luuk de Jong returns to the Newcastle United starting line-up for Saturday's Barclays Premier League home fixture against Swansea City (3pm kick-off).
The Dutch international striker was an unused substitute as the Magpies lost at Stoke last weekend, but manager Alan Pardew has chosen to recall the on-loan Borussia Monchengladbach man for the visit of the Swans.
That is United's only change from the Britannia Stadium, with de Jong replacing defender Steven Taylor, and will mean a slight reshuffle for the hosts.
Swansea City (4-2-3-1): Michel Vorm; Angel Rangel, Jordi Amat, Ashley Williams (c), Ben Davies; Leon Britton, Jonathan de Guzman; Wayne Routledge, Jonjo Shelvey, Pablo Hernandez; Wilfried Bony
Substitutes: Gerhard Tremmel, Neil Taylor, Kyle Bartley, Jay Fulton, Nathan Dyer, Marvin Emnes, David Ngog
Referee: Chris Foy (Lancashire)
