After playing four pre-season friendly’s thus far, there’s been some impressive performers for Newcastle already this summer.
Our latest pre-season match saw a sluggish 2-1 defeat to Mainz, but prior to this we’ve seen an emphatic 4-0 win at Bradford, a comfortable 2-1 win at hearts and a 1-1 draw with Championship outfit Preston.
Here’s 10 Newcastle players who’ve impressed us most over pre-season thus far ahead of NUFC’s penultimate clash against Wolfsburg:
1. Florian Lejeune
After a long, drawn-out transfer saga, the Frenchman was signed for £8.7m earlier this summer from La Liga side Eibar, and based on his displays so far, he was worth the wait. The 6ft 3′ centre-half looks to have a nice blend of no nonsense and ball playing ability, with his coolness and quality in possession particularly standing out.
