The Newcastle fans are in the Tavern tonight and they seem happy Rafa Benitez is finally getting some new faces in at the club.
Next season is absolutely crucial for the long-term success of Newcastle United.
Should they get relegated, it is likely Rafa Benitez will either get fired or look for a way out of the club and they could struggle in the Championship for years to come.
If they have a good season, Benitez will surely stay and try and help the Tyneside club climb back up the ladder of English football.
Compared to most other clubs, Newcastle have had a relatively quiet transfer window with only a handful of new faces making their way to St. James’ Park so far.
Right now, a club like Newcastle can’t really afford to get rid of many players as every little can help when fighting the relegation dog fight, but there are a few exceptions to the rule.
There are a few players on the books at Newcastle who wouldn’t be able to contribute much going into their new Premier League era.
For that reason, Benitez should look to move those players on before they become a real issue for the side.
Bad performances from individuals can quickly turn into bad performances from the whole team and Rafa will not want that to happen.
With that being said, here are two Newcastle players who could potentially hold the side back next season.
