Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton is available to play for the club after his bail conditions were changed.
Barton has not played since the draw with Derby on 23 December
Barton, 25, was charged with assault and affray last month, and ordered by a to live in Hampshire and return by 1930 GMT each day.
He was being flown to training, which he resumed on 15 January, but has now been allowed to move to Newcastle and given a later time to report home.
Boss Kevin Keegan has included him in his squad to face Arsenal on Tuesday.
"Common sense has prevailed and it's a major plus for us," Keegan said. "We are very low with numbers at the minute and I'd have no problems with bringing him on.
"He's worked very hard in training. It's not been a good time for him but we can turn this into a positive."
Barton last played for Newcastle in the home draw against Derby on 23 December and was charged four days later.
I think we will see a new Joey Barton at the end of this
Keegan, who worked with him when the pair were at Manchester City, believes this will be the start of happier times for his player and has backed him to cope with provocation from opposition fans.
"I think we will see a new Joey Barton at the end of this," he added.
"Sometimes people have to go where he has been to realise what they've got and what they might not have.
"I've helped Joey before and told him I would back him 100% the first day I came in.
"He knows the score - he will have to be mentally tough and Joey's football has to do the talking now. He has to win favour back through his footballing performances."
