Pic Special: Remy In The Running
Alan Pardew has already revealed that new boy Loic Remy is likely to miss the first match of the season as he recovers from a calf injury, but the French forward was out on the training pitches at United's Benton base on Thursday morning.
He, along with compatriots Massadio Haidara and Romain Amalfitano, took part in some light jogging exercises away from the rest of their team-mates but Remy was all smiles after his season-long loan move from Queens Park Rangers was agreed on Monday.
With Portuguese outfit SC Braga coming to St. James' Park on Saturday (kick-off 6pm), it was a tough session for the rest of the team as they took part in some exhausting sprint sessions before playing a series of small-sided possession games.
And Dan King captured the lads at work exclusively for nufc.co.uk.
