Siem de Jong is out of tomorrow's pre-season friendly against Bohemian.

The Newcastle United forward has returned to Tyneside with a hamstring problem.

De Jong's career at St James's Park has been punctuated by injuries.

And the 27-year-old had been hoping for a full pre-season campaign.

But the Holland international suffered a hamstring injury during the club's week-long training camp in Ireland.

Newcastle face Dublin side Bohemian at Dalymount Park tomorrow.
