Newcastle striker Siem de Jong has picked up another injury during training which now means he has been injured on eleven occasions during his two years at the club.

The Chronicle report that the Dutch international picked up a hamstring injury during training which now means he could miss the start of the Championship season.

The Dutch international has been ravaged with injuries since he made his £6million switch from Ajax to Newcastle in the summer of 2014.

The forward has suffered numerous muscle problems, a collapsed lung, a bizarre eye injury sustained when being poked by his teammate during training and yet another muscle injury.

It is said he picked up his latest knock during training after stretching to keep the ball in play then making an elaborate turn.

Fans will be hugely disappointed that De Jong has broken down once again with what seems a routine action for a professional player.

De Jong scored his first goal for Newcastle during a losing cause against Swansea in April 2015, the player has only featured on only 22 occasions for the club and made only four starts.

As reported by Football Insider, Turkish giants Fenerbache showed interest in the premier league striker,but it seems with these continuous injury problems his nightmare in the north east looks set to continue.

In other Newcastle team news, the clubs £12 million signing has revealed the plans he put in place during the summer in order to be a key feature in Rafa Bentiez’ side this season.
