And despite being sidelined, he made sure to show his support for the team amid an extended period of uncertainty for the Brazilian.

The midfielder's contract expires next June and Newcastle will reluctantly add him to this summer's transfer list if a fresh deal isn't agreed before the summer window opens. Joelinton wants to be amongst the top earners at the club to reflect his position in Eddie Howe's side.

"We're still trying from the club's side," head coach Eddie Howe recently said on Joelinton's contract situation. "We're desperate to keep him, we know his qualities and what he brings but I don't think there has been any major update or any major change to the situation."

The 27-year-old has been injured since Newcastle United's FA Cup win over Sunderland in January. And after undergoing surgery on his thigh, the footballer is in a race to play again this season. But the Brazilian's support for the Magpies isn't waning. Last night, Joelinton shared his love for his team despite a frustrating draw.

His partner, Thays Gondim, posted a photo of the pair pitchside to Instagram with the caption: 'House.'

Joelinton reshared the photo along with a house emoji and black and white hearts.

Discussing his contract situation in December, he said: "Yes, of course I want to stay. I feel at home here. My family feels at home, my son has friends here. I love the city.

"There have been talks [about a new deal], there’s nothing close yet but there’s been conversation and it’s a good start."
