Vincent Kompany confirms Newcastle United friendly

Newcastle United have lined up an additional friendly for their trip to Portugal.

Eddie Howe's side take on Benfica at the Estadio da Luz, Lisbon, on July 26.

The club are also planning to take on Burnley in the city in a behind-closed-doors training fixture three days earlier.

Newcastle beat Burnley 2-1 at Turf Moor on the final day of last season. United have since signed Nick Pope from the club, now managed by Vincent Kompany.

Kompany told the Burnley Express: “We play Newcastle on Saturday."
