However, Pardew does not know whether one or both of the pair will be available for Saturday's home game with Swansea.

Forward Remy and full-back Debuchy have been sidelined by calf and groin injuries respectively but are now back in training.

And Newcastle have been in dire form in their absence, scoring just one goal in six games without Remy and losing their last four Premier League matches.

Regarding the prospect of the pair returning, Pardew said: "It will be a big boost for us in terms of their experience at this level and their quality. It's nice to see them back.

"With the World Cup not far around the corner, it's important that they get the time in now."

However, when asked if they will be in the squad this weekend, he added: "I'm not sure. We'll have to wait and see on that for Saturday."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
