Newcastle United winger Gabriel Obertan is determined to prove himself next season.

With his injury issues hopefully behind him, Obertan will return for pre-season training next week geared up and ready for the challenge of both domestic and European action in a black-and-white shirt.

Obertan told the Evening Chronicle: "I am looking forward to finding some rhythm and coming back fully fit.

"You always need that. Everybody had a great season last year and we'll look to build on that."
