The 35-year-old winger played 15 minutes of the goalless pre-season friendly against Stoke at Meadow Lane on Thursday night.

Magpies boss Craig Short says it is too early to discuss a deal with the ex-Manchester United trainee.

"He wants to come and get fit and we haven't got cover on the right, so we will see how it goes," said Short.
