Photos: Linked-away Newcastle player training hard, striker shares a joke

Newcastle United will take on Manchester United away from home in the Premier League tomorrow.

The Newcastle United players have been training today ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League game against Manchester United away from home at Old Trafford.

The Magpies will be looking to register their first win of the season, having picked up just a point from their opening two games.

Steve McClaren’s side drew 2-2 with Southampton at St. James’ Park, before going down 2-0 to Swansea City away from the home at the Liberty Stadium last weekend.

The Newcastle players were training hard today, and among those preparing for the match was Mike Williamson (see photo above).

The defender has been on the books of the Premier League outfit since 2010, but there has been speculation over the past few days that he could be sold before the summer transfer window shuts next month.

According to The Chronicle, Newcastle are looking to move on the 31-year-old Englishman this month.

Another Newcastle player who has been linked with a move away from St. James’ Park this summer is Papiss Cisse.

The Senegal international striker has been on the books of the Magpies since 2012, but The Chronicle claimed earlier this month than Turkish clubs Trabzonspor and Fenerbahce are interested in him.

Cisse was training today and he seemed to be enjoying it, as the photo below shows him sharing laughs with teammate Chancel Mbemba.
