Photo: Howe calls 'talented' 19-year-old Newcastle United prospect into senior training, could be involved vs Fulham

Newcastle United youngster Joe White has been pictured in first-team training ahead of Saturday’s match against Fulham.

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder has been drafted in after a spate of injuries.

Chronicle Live report that White could be involved against Fulham depending on the severity of several player’s injuries.

It’s not the first time Howe has called up the 19-year-old to train with the first team.

And now White could benefit from a number of absences.

He was joined by 18-year-old Jay Turner-Cooke, and Chronicle Live report that the pair have been regularly involved with Eddie Howe’s squad.

White was being monitored by Leeds United at the start of the year, but signed a three-year deal in March.

It’s no surprise Howe has called White into the first team squad.

Newcastle’s manager has made it clear in the past that he’s a big fan of the 19-year-old.

“With Joe White, I’ve been very impressed.” Howe said.

“He’s a talented player.”

White has only featured twice in the Premier League 2 this season, after picking up an injury in pre-season.

A knock to his knee scuppered White’s preparations, and he told Chronicle Live it stopped him from securing a loan move this summer.

White can at least look to the progression of Elliot Anderson, who has made a brilliant impact on the first team this season.

Anderson is one of a number of players who could return against Fulham after picking up injuries.

Alexander Isak, Callum Wilson, Chris Wood, Allan Saint-Maximin and Bruno Guimaraes have all been injury doubts.

It will be interesting to see how many of Howe’s attacking stars make the trip to Craven Cottage.

White will be doing his best to impress Howe in first-team training this week, and hopefully earn himself an opportunity on Saturday.
