Photos: Aleksandar Mitrovic trains for Newcastle United

Georginio Wijnaldum (C) of Newcastle United celebrates scoring his team's first goal with his team mates Aleksandar Mitrovic (L) and Moussa Sissoko (R) during the Barclays Premier League...

Newcastle United players trained today in chilly conditions but one man, Aleksandar Mitrovic, felt the cold more than others.

Newcastle United were put through their paces by Rafael Benitez today ahead of Tuesday's trip to West Bromwich Albion.

The Magpies travel to the West Midlands hoping for a big response following the demoralising 3-0 defeat by Watford at St James's Park.

One man who might well be in contention to start is Aleksandar Mitrovic, who has been given only 70 minutes of Premier League football by Benitez this season.

Dwight Gayle and Joselu each drew a blank up front for the Magpies at the weekend and Mitrovic - linked today in a player-plus-cash deal for Besiktas's Cenk Tosun - might just be a better option.

The 23-year-old suggested he was unhappy with his situation in the North-East last week but, going by today's training photos, the weather might be the main source of his frustration.

Only the striker's eyes were visible during the session as the Magpies players endured a chilly morning on Tyneside ahead of the trip to Birmingham.
