Pic Special: Mapou's In Training
New signing Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa took part in his first training session on Thursday morning.
The centre-back, who arrived from Montpellier on Tuesday, met his United teammates before being put through his paces at the Club's Benton-based Training Centre.
After a warm-up, Yanga-Mbiwa and Co undertook a number of drills and short-sided games, taking advantage of the undersoil heating on the training pitch, while snow lay all around the outside.
Newcastle's new number 13 certainly caught the eye in his first session, and Club Photographer Ian Horrocks has created this exclusive gallery of the morning's activities.
