Rather than pulling on one of Cardiffâ€™s controversial new red shirts, he is ready to show his true colours with the black-and-whites.
He told the Sunday Sun: â€śMy main aim is to stay fit.
â€śIf I train hard, stay fit, then the opportunities will come. Iâ€™m really looking forward to it and itâ€™s great to be back.â€ť
Those opportunities will indeed flow if the Magpies can negotiate their way beyond the play-off stage and into the group format of the Europa League.
Vuckic added: â€śItâ€™s more games for us and of course there is the League Cup as well.
â€śThereâ€™ll be more chances now.â€ť
