Newcastle United fans are generally pleased after seeing both Andy Carroll and Florian Lejeune in training.

Newcastle signed Carroll this summer, while Lejeune has been out with a knee problem since April.

The injury prone duo have both been unable to feature at all this season.

 

But it seems that Newcastle could see Carroll and Lejeune back in action sooner rather than later.

And the pictures of the pair being put through some running drills in training have excited Newcastle fans.

Newcastle are already in need of a boost, so the return of Lejeune and the arrival of Carroll should be helpful.

Lejeune is a hugely impressive defender on his day, but he has just struggled staying fit ever since moving to Newcastle.

Carroll will help increase Steve Bruce’s side’s attacking threat, but still needs to prove he can keep himself off the treatment table for a concerted period of time.
