Newcastle's Daryl Janmaat insists there are no worries about his fitness, with the new season less than two weeks away.

Janmaat, who joined the Magpies this summer from Feyenoord, has missed a chunk of pre-season due to his involvement with Holland at the World Cup finals.

But the 25-year-old - who looks set to be Newcastle's first-choice right-back this season, replacing Mathieu Debuchy - has calmed any fears that he might not be ready for their opener at home to champions Manchester City on Sunday, August 17.

"I feel fit but I have trained only three times," said Janmaat, who is hoping to play a big part in the friendly against Real Sociedad on Sunday.

"So it's good to get my minutes now. On Sunday, I can play more."

Whilst Janmaat should be fit for City, there is a real worry over Cheick Tiote. The Ivory Coast midfielder has a hamstring injury, which could rule him out.
