Undated, Dec 7 (Reuters) Newcastle United defender Jamaal Lascelles is eager to help the Premier League club halt their slump and says he could return from a foot injury for Saturday's trip to Leicester City.

Lascelles sustained the injury during Newcastle's league defeat to Bournemouth last month and the Tyneside club have lost three and drawn one of their four matches in their captain's absence to slip to 15th in the table.
