Newcastle United captain already working on his fitness as Magpies prepare for Premier League

Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles says he wants to lead by example after making an early start to pre-season training.

The 23-year-old played in pain for the final four months of the Magpies’ promotion-winning campaign before undergoing surgery on his groin in early May.

“I just figured that I should come in and get some extra fitness, because after Christmas I wasn’t really getting the conditioning in training and games that I wanted," he says.

"The Premier League, everyone knows, is a completely different level and different standard so I just want to make sure I’m ready and I want to be leading by example."
