Newcastle United: Squad overhaul planned before proposed takeover takes place

Newcastle United: Squad overhaul planned before proposed takeover takes place - Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

Newcastle United will look to augment their first team squad with youngsters for when the Premier League returns, with a relatively large number of their under-23 players alerted to the possibility of being called up to train alongside the seniors, according to The Athletic.

Amongst the names mentioned are forward Tom Allan, midfield players Jack Young and Elliot Anderson, goalkeeper Dan Langley and defender Lewis Cass, who are believed to be able to provide cover if and when needed.

Steve Bruce is apparently still unsure about whether he will be able to use every member of his 25-man top flight squad for the remainder of the 2019/20 season, whist all Premier League clubs’ medical departments expect a higher-than-usual volume of muscular injuries once matches resume next Wednesday, when Aston Villa first host Sheffield United before Manchester City play Arsenal.

Let us start with the 10th most expensive, how much was Jonjo Shelvey?

As per The Athletic, the likes of Andy Carroll, Rob Elliot and Javier Manquillo are set to be out of contract on June 30, with no short-term extensions yet agreed. Central midfielder Matty Longstaff, who at the age of 20 does not need to be registered in that 25-strong senior group, is also scheduled to see his deal expire, showing just how much of an overhaul could be done to the squad before the start of next season.

Indeed, the proposed takeover in the northeast may have come into fruition by the time the 2020/21 season starts, meaning that Amanda Staveley’s Saudi Arabia-led consortium will have to decide which players stay and go, as well as any extra additions that they would perhaps like to make in the transfer window.
