Newcastle Training Photos From Wednesday

Rafa Benitez is ramping up the training at Newcastle and here are some of the training photos from Wednesday.

The latest news on the transfer front is that Jesus Gamez, a 31 year-old highly rated full back at Atletico Madrid turned down some Premier League clubs and is almost certain to sign for Newcastle.

He is expected to be Tyneside on Thursday to sign for the Magpies.

The fee should be around £5M with Jesus having just one year left on his contract and it looks like he will be a great signing for us – a very good and reliable defensive full-back.
