Newcastle United will travel to Ireland in July for a week-long pre-season training camp.
The Magpies will be based in County Kildare from Saturday 9th-Saturday 16th July, where they will step up their preparations for the 2016/17 Skybet Championship season.
At this time there will be no fixtures during the training camp, however the Club are in the advanced stages of finalising a number of friendlies for elsewhere in the pre-season campaign.
"This training camp will be all about hard work and trying to maximise the time we have together," said United boss Rafa Benitez.
"The venue is a great football environment with excellent facilities and not too far to travel, which was very important.
"The focus will be on fitness, making sure we all bond together and sharing ideas.
"It will be very hard work and we are confident that it will be the perfect way to prepare for the start of the new season."
