Pic Special: New Boys Get Tested

Summer signings Siem de Jong and Jack Colback were among the Newcastle United stars undertaking fitness testing on Saturday.

The duo, who arrived from Ajax and Sunderland respectively, were at their new workplace - the Magpies' Benton-based Training Centre - where they were put through their paces ahead of the start of proper training on Monday.

De Jong and Colback were joined by the likes of captain Fabricio Coloccini, Hatem Ben Arfa, Vurnon Anita and Steven Taylor, as they went through a series of mobility and flexibility drills, aerobic capacity tests and core screening, among other things.

And capturing it all for this exclusive gallery of images was Digital Editor Dan King.
