11 Newcastle United players that must impress Eddie Howe in Austria - and six that don’t

A number of Newcastle United players will be hoping to impress head coach Eddie Howe whilst in Austria.

Newcastle United are currently in Austria as part of their preparations for the new Premier League season.

Eddie Howe’s 29-man strong squad landed in Austria on Sunday ahead of an eight-day training camp, where they will also face German side 1860 Munich and Mainz 05.

Several players will be keen to impress the Magpies head coach, whether that be to save their career on Tyneside or make the starting XI for the league opener with Nottingham Forest on Saturday, August 6.

Austria is the first opportunity for players to stake their claim before ending pre-season with further friendlies against Benfica in Portugal and Athletic Bilbao and Atalanta at St James’ Park.
