Newcastle United have revealed their latest change and third kits ahead of the start of the Barclays Premier League season, with the new Puma designs going on sale next month (Images below).

The new kits will be available to buy from the Official Club stores at St. James' Park, Eldon Square, Monument Mall and the Metrocentre on Thursday July 15.

Newcastle United Managing Director Derek Llambias said: "We're very pleased with the new kits and we're delighted with the look and design that Puma have come up with. They have delivered two eye-catching kits for the club and its supporters.

"I'm sure our new change and third strips will be well received by our fans and we're also looking forward to revealing our all-new home kit in a few weeks."

The last time Newcastle played in an all-blue kit was during the 2005/06 season, with the strip being used in the early part of United's Intertoto Cup campaign. But over the years, the colour has featured prominently, with blue used in the late 1960s and early 1970s for both the change and third kit.

Blue was also the colour as United made their bow in the Premier League during the 1993/94 season, and even got an airing at St. James' Park when visitors Sheffield Wednesday turned up with two away kits - one of which clashed with our famous black and white stripes and another which clashed with the referee's uniform.

It's now ten years since Newcastle wore all-white, with the away kit used in Sir Bobby Robson's first season in charge at United.

But the link goes back much further, with the Magpies famously donning a white strip against Sporting Lisbon at St. James' Park in 1968 on their way to Fairs Cup glory.

Details and images of Newcastle United's new Puma home kit will be released in the coming weeks.
