The Blues are back in training today ahead of the new Premiership season with everybody apart from David James and Claudio Reyna reporting for the first summer session at the Club's Carrington Training Centre.

All three summer siginings, Ousmane Dabo, Paul Dickov and Joe Hart joined in the first training session of pre-season this morning, as the Manager also welcomed the new playing recruits from the Academy and Frankie Bunn as the new reserve team manager.
