A massive season for Newcastle United and so many of the players, nobody more so than Siem de Jong.

Moving to NUFC with a massive reputation of creativity and goalscoring in holiday, as well as excellent Champions League showings for Ajax.

The Dutchman arrived on Tyneside with great expectations despite an injury plagued final season in Amsterdam, only to have almost an entire season wiped out by injury at Newcastle.

With only 26 days before pre-season training begins and 64 days until the Premier League kicks off again, what next for Siem de Jong?

He failed to appear in the final matches of Newcastle’s near relegation campaign as he didn’t feel strong enough to cope.

Hopefully this summer and some beach training will have done him the power of good.

Siem de Jong posted the message on Twitter this morning.
