Newcastle United midfielder Haris Vuckic is excited to be facing Cardiff City.

It was only last March Vuckic was pulling on the blue shirt of Cardiff City during an educational loan stint in south Wales as he played his part in the Bluebirds' play-off charge.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "It will be good to go back there.

"It was a great experience for me at Cardiff last year.

"I played a few games. I became stronger mentally and had more confidence.

"A loan can only help you. There are always positives from it."
