Newcastle United have announced their third pre-season fixture in the United States of America, as they take on Orlando City on Saturday, July 23.

United will spend a couple of days training in Florida before taking on the Lions, whose head coach is former Everton, Manchester City and Burnley midfielder Adrian Heath.

The match will complete the Magpies' trip to the States, with games either side for Alan Pardew's team, who will also take on Sporting Kansas City on Wednesday, July 20, and Columbus Crew on Tuesday, July 26.

Orlando were only founded in 2010 and are making their debut in the American Division of the new USL Professional Division, the third tier of the American Soccer Pyramid, this season.

They kicked off their campaign at the start of April with a 2-0 defeat at the Richmond Kickers, and entertain FC New York in their first home game on Saturday.
