The central defender is available once again after serving a two-match ban following his second dismissal of the season at Leicester, and he could be joined in the squad by midfielder Siem de Jong, who is back in training after a thigh problem.

Striker Papiss Cisse (knee) and winger Rolando Aarons (hamstring) are fit, if short of match fitness, but keeper Rob Elliot (thigh), defenders Steven Taylor (calf/shin) and Massadio Haidara (knee), and midfielder Cheick Tiote (also knee) remain on the sidelines.

West Ham defender James Collins will miss the trip to the North East with a calf strain.

Collins has also been ruled out of Wales’ European Championship qualifier against Belgium on June 12 with the injury.

Defender James Tomkins returns to the team after recovering from a dislocated shoulder.
