Pictures of the new home kit come just days after Footyheadlines unveiled the club’s third kit for next season.
The lightning-inspired shirt, designed by Adidas, will be predominantly blue and rounded out in style with a shade of turquoise and red and white logos.
It echoes the memorable ‘Blue Lightning’ away kits that Nike released between 1994 and 1996 and worn by a slew of tough big names.
