JAK Alnwick is back at Newcastle United – after suffering a wrist injury.

The goalkeeper joined Bradford City on loan until the end of the season last month.

But Alnwick – who had a run in the team at Newcastle earlier this season with Tim Krul and Rob Elliot sidelined through injury – is back on Tyneside for a scan, according to BBC Radio Leeds.

The 21-year-old has made just one appearance for the League One club.

Alnwick is expected to leave United in the summer when his contract expires.
