Newcastle United goalkeeper Rob Elliot is happy to be back in preseason training.
He told the Evening Chronicle: "Not every footballer likes pre-season but it is good to be back.
"After last season there is a real buzz about the place.
"It is pretty much the same group of lads here as last year and the staff are the same so it's a good vibe.
"Pre-season for me, though, is a good time - I should get a few games."
