Pic Special: Loic Who's Back!

Loic Remy and Mathieu Debuchy returned to full training on Thursday, as Newcastle stepped up their preparations for the weekend's visit of Swansea City.

The French duo last pulled on a Magpies' shirt away at Hull City at the start of March, and have been sidelined by respective calf and groin injuries since.

However, they offered United a huge boost by joining in with the rest of the squad and are in contention for Saturday's Barclays Premier League fixture against the Swans at St. James' Park.

Hamstring injury-victim Moussa Sissoko returned to Tyneside on Thursday morning to do some light running, while winger Gabriel Obertan is also back in action following a lengthy lay-off.

Capturing the best of the training session for this exclusive gallery of images was Club Photographer Serena Taylor.
