A fresh clip has revealed Joelinton is back in the gym after undergoing thigh surgery last month.

After undergoing surgery, the 27-year-old faces four months out and is in a race to play again this season. And now Joelinton's long-term partner, Thays Gondim, has provided an update for United fans, sharing a clip of the midfielder in the gym working building back his strength.

Posting to her Instagram story, the Brazilian shared a loved-up video of the pair exercising together, with Joelinton on the leg curl machine.

With rehab underway, Joelinton could be working his way to full fitness before United's final match of the season against Brentford on 19th May.

However there is still some uncertainty surrounding the footballer.

By the time the midfielder returns to fitness, he'll have just 12 months left to run on the contract he penned when signed from Hoffenheim for a then club-record £40million in 2019.

Talks have taken place over a new deal but the two parties remain some way apart from an agreement. Asked on Friday if there was an update, Howe simply replied: "No."

Joelinton has scored 25 times and provided 15 assists during 180 appearances for Newcastle. Last year, Joelinton made his Brazil debut.
