“This will be my first time back at Old Trafford – I’ve not played there for a long time. I’ve obviously played against Manchester United at our place, last year, which was a bit special but this is something different even from that,” he told The Journal.

“It will be a really, really big moment in my career because not a lot of players leave Manchester United and go back as a Premier League players.

“It is even more special that I will be going back as part of a Newcastle United team that is very, very good. We will not be scared of going there. It is a big moment, it will be nice for me to go back to Old Trafford but Newcastle and getting the three points will be my priority.

“I know Is till have a lot of learning to do and I want to continue to do that as a Newcastle United player.”
