Some exciting footage has emerged from the club this afternoon, showing Allan Saint-Maximin and Jetro Willems training with their new Newcastle United teammates for the first time.
Not only does the video below show Saint-Maximin smashing a few 20-yard shots into the top corner (see this at 1:13 and 2:05), the clip shows DeAndre Yedlin back in action with the squad, while it’s also worth noting Jack Colback is nowhere to be seen.
Here’s the footage, featuring the new boys in good spirits at Benton and some stunning finishes from Saint-Maximin:
We’ve only seen Saint-Maximin in a friendly vs St-Etienne and for a few seconds in training here, but it’s hard to ignore what an explosive talent he appears to be – and that’s forgetting Jetro Willems (a Dutch international) and Joelinton (our new £40m man who’s looked razor sharp in the last two friendly’s).
As for Colback, he’s missed out on the squad in our last two pre-season games (despite no reported injury) and he’s not involved in training today, while it’s good to see Yedlin back with the group after a few months out.
